I use a Fleetguard Stratopore with a Frantz Bypass TP filter.... I would evaluate the filter by the size of particle it can remove in a single pass. GB

I used to run ONLY Fleetguard LF3894 Stratapore filters but after doing a bit of reading and price comparison, I found that Baldwins makes EVERYBIT as good if not a better filter in my opinion for less than half the price. I use ALL Baldwin filters on my trucks with the exception of the Air Dog 150 filters and apparently Fleetguard is the only manufacturer I am aware of for these. A Fleetguard LF 3894 crosses over to a Baldwin BT7349: http://catalog.baldwinfilter.com/PartImages/BT7349.jpg If you purchase these filters by the case of 12 through BF Web Express, the cost is $4.79 each. http://www.bfwebexpress.com/default.htm
