fuel filter change

Recommended Posts

I think you got to keep an eye on both but for sure as soon as you see your pressure drop you need to change it .

Spring and fall. I never miss doing a fall pre winter fuel filter change just to prevent issues in the dead of winter and to make sure there is no moisture in the filter can that could freeze up.

Since I added the 2 micron FF after the OEM FF in the canister, I only change my FF's once per year. Usually in July/August. Not had any problems.

Because I have my fuel pressure gauge prior to the fuel filters and my regulator after the CP3; I usually see an "increase" in fuel pressure if the filters start to become "plugged"!!:smart:

I have only had my current filter setup for one change, but that was 30K miles. I only saw a .5-1 psi drop from when they were new. 30K miles is the most I will run a set of filters, otherwise I go off pressure.

Typically once a year with the 2-3 Micron Fleetguard

If your referring to the AD FF5613 its a 5um, if you want I can send you the Fleetguard spec sheet.

Figures...:lmao2: It's still better than stock filters alone...:thumbup2:

Yes and no... The only aftermarket fuel system that has better overall filtering than stock is the new platinum from FASS. Neither the FASS nor AD setups remove anywhere near as much water from the fuel as the stock setup, and the FASS 95 can only be fit with 10um filters... I swear when I started researching the specs on the FASS and AD systems I thought for sure the mfgrs didn't even look at filter specs, just played enie menie miney mo..

I keep an eye on the fuel pressure gauge and if I note any deterioration of fuel pressure from normal, I replace the OEM canister filter on the wife's truck. On my truck I do the same but I have the AirDog filter that gets replaced first then the OEM cannister filter if pressure does not return to normal.

Changed mine today, fuel pressure was showing 14 to 15 PSI. Sounded good enough of a reason for me to do it. :thumbup2:

How offen do you change oil? Remember even the owners manual suggest every other oil change (15K miles). You might be changing too early...

I change it at 8000 miles. I change my air filter oil filter and fuel filter. then at 25000 change all rear ends transfure case transmission oil. I am keeping this truck for a longe time so I think that it should be in good shape 10 years from now.

That is the filter I have for my AirDog 150.

Yep, its the OE filter for the AD. The Donaldson P551315 is a 3um filter, and can also be used on the AD.

I need to gather up the AD filter number and update a filter list on my HTML page... Very Helpful information... :thumbup2:
