Exclamation Best fuel filter?

i just wanted to get some input on the best fuel filter to run on our truck, since it was new it has had gm filters on it and changed about every 30,000 miles. now i have a wix filter at the shop that came with the access door kit from madjack diesel that i am going to put on at the next change interval, but not sure what to start using after that. thanks.

I heard the wix filter was junk. When I bought my dmax it had a wix and I replaced it with a Racor filter and that's all I've been using. Eventually I think I'll swap to the cat filters.

I've only used ac delco thus far. Have the cat adaptor and filter I will put on in about 5000 miles. I cant really compare anything, as mentioned, Ive only used ac delco.

I have a Napa gold on it now. I didn't know any better right after I bought it. It had one of them on it when I bought it. Going to go with the Nicktane adapter from MadJack when I go to change it. I am going to go with the Donaldson water seperator, that's what the concrete pump uses
