    Dura go is the southwest side of Colorado. I’m located in the middle, west of Colorado Springs. I have located the fuel pump and the fuel filter. Which side of the fuel filter do I disconnect…..the fuel pump side or the firewall side. I so wish I had paid more attention when my husband worked...
