Are we talking stock filter for the vp44? Most guys here prolly run an Air Dog or a Fass FP & filters. At least a $500 setup!

I'm running both the stock Fleetguard and the AirDog 150 with fleetguard 3 micron... Lets say tthe stock filter is still white for the most part and closing in at 50K miles... But I've changed the AD filter twice in 50K miles...

The BF1275 is the f/w sep, as is the BF1212 or FS1000. The P553203 is the final and f/w sep for the platinum.

OK guys looking for some confirmation on this f/W for my AD100. I am running the WS100 on it now and I believe that the Donaldson P550550 will cross over can you verify this for me. Thanks also AH would this be a viable substitute to the Baldwin unit?

The P550550 is a cross for the BF1275 and may work, but I haven't seen the specs on it.

how do you get 50k on a fuel filter here in the great state of minnesota and our bio diesel it is more like 5k miles on fuel filters:lol: not quite that bad but i manage a NAPA and we sell about as many fuel filters as we do oil filters i know alot of common rail guys that carry a extra in the truck. As for what kind of filter dont count out the NAPA Gold line they are great filters made by wix. most of you guys can find a NAPA easier. the NAPA #s that end in XE (extended efficincy) are great the new 6.7 filter is even a fleetgard filter.

Wix made fuel filters are not that great. They don't even offer a filter for the 5.9 commonrail that meets OE specs. Any diesel owner should carry a spare filter, you can get bad fuel in any year vehicle. The only real way to extend filter life is with a fuel psi gauge. With good fuel they can go a long time, but one bad tank and they are done.

Napa does to offer a filter the # is 3585xe it is a 7 micron filter but you have to have the xe on the end

--- Update to the previous post...

also as far a longevity of fuel filters here in minnesota we have bio and it does not mix well with cold weather. I swear at our NAPA we sell a ton of fuel filters our fuel is horable it has no self life and gells often. I have hade guy bring in filters with no hours black and mold growing on them it is great for our buisness

Per the spec's on the wix website the 33585XE is an 8um absolute filter. The OE requires 7um at 98.7%. There is a big difference in nominal and absolute. Wix Data http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/PartDetail.asp?Part=33585XE OE TSB http://dodgeram.info/tsb/2006/14-007-06.htm Bio does gel a lot easier. I had fully treated B20 that gelled on me twice, and the 2nd time it had a full dose of Amsoil Diesel Recovery in it. The reason bio cloggs filters is it acts as a solvent and will clean out your tank.
