Anyone Running XX-Fuel Filter System?

Anyone running XX-Fuel's duel fuel filter system? How do you like it/hate it? Can your run any other type of filters ie Cat/baldwin or are you stuck buying theirs?

Seems like I've been reading a lot lately on how people do not like the XX system because it has no pump.

Is there a need for a lift pump if your using the truck to haul and daily drive? I can't imagine that adding those filters would restrict the system enought to need a pump.

Lift pumps always help... an Airdog system removes air from fuel, filters better, etc.. doesn't matter if its stock or modded. Is it a NEED..no. I know nothing about the XX system, I just know what I've read from other members on here.. just seems like everyone is saying that for the extra money, picking up an Airdog system is money better spent.

Yes. GM made the factory filters 6micron for a reason. If the cp3 is having problems sucking through 6 microns its most defiantly going to have problems sucking through 2microns.


I really like the setup that XX fuel has, But im with everybody else in thinking a pump needs to be incorporated into the design to be able to supply the pressure requirements. Once they do that they will be able to take on AirDog and FASS head on.

You keep saying that yet i think you fail to realize there will still not be a comparison to an AirDog or FASS b/c of the air separation/filtering of the systems.

The only thing they will have is a less expensive fuel pump and fuel filter/water sep system.

yes but you would be able to just get the Donaldson filters that would have a water air separator in with them, similar to what fass does

It will NOT have AIR separation, just fuel/water filtration.

well regardless, this is not a debate of which is better. Just that a pump would make them a player in the game
