Fuel filter replacement help

Hey guys, I just bought a fuel filter (bosch 71650) online that fits my nissan 240sx 1991. When it arrived the fuel filter was actually ‘smaller in size’ than the original one in my car right now which was bigger… could I still replace it or will that be bad?

You can still use it. Just might have to change it more often.

That appears to be the correct filter so if it fits, it shouldn’t be a problem. Maybe someone before put a different one in. Just make sure the actual number on the filter matches the box. People sometimes return them or swap them out.
