Did you cut it open or just pour it out?

We have the same jug: CLICK

Depending on where you get fuel, the amount/kind of garbage that comes running out of your filter can vary greatly. A lot cleaner than yours and a whole lot worse.

Smile. None of that went through your CP4.2 (or any further).

Was that the first filter change since you bought the truck?

I see a little water but it looks like the filter did its job. You should post some pictures of the actual filter media.

^^^Agree^^^

Cut the canister with a cold-chisel or pipe cutter (anything that will not leave cuttings in the canister).

-Bunch up the media like a compressed accordion.
-Squeeze the fuel out of it in a vise OR with paper towel and your hands.
-"Unbunch" the aforementioned media and read your engine's fortune.
-Oh, and post a pic of it!
