Time to change my fuel filter guys! Do you guys have a particular one to use? Also I plan on buying the WIF wrench.

Any information you can give for instructions is great this will be my first time.....

I get mine from autozone because thats the cheapest ive found them and on my LLY i would have to just sit either on the engine or get a stool and make sure to eat your wheaties for some added strength but sometimes they come off pretty easy with not much force!

they say the wix at napa is a great one ,

im trying the AFE right now....

wrench is a must 12 bucks on ebay shipped

real easy to do drop the inner fender trim , u can do it with out taking it out but its tight...

use a lil 2 stroke oil on the new o rings when seeding them so they seal tight...

I need to buy one of these for sure because the channel locks are not the most smartest way to remove the WIF sensor

i have bought my fuel filters from auto zone, steel casing, and new o rings. 26.99 you don't need a wrench just grab it from under your wheel well and put a little muscle into your turn, piece of cake.....

you can change it thru the topside just remove the intake hose (filter box to mouthpiece) and it's right there!

you are correct but you can get a better grip on the filter from the wheel well, at least i can due to the fact that my truck has a 6" lift......

Really? Cheaper than $30 each with tax? What brad was this?

OR less than about 3 bucks less than that on our site, shipped :D

So roughly $29 with tax, for a bottom of the barrel filter? Is it worth saving a dollar to short yourself of the best out there?

If you want the best fuel filter for your Duramax, go with the new Coalescer filter made by Racor for GM. It lasts up to twice as long as regular fuel filters and does a better job of water separation. You will pay a few more bucks for it initially, but if you do the math, you are actually saving since it lasts up to twice as long. Add an extra filter and you will save even more. Here is a link with more info, we also carry the PPE wrench if you need one of those.

boy oh boy, there comes that "best" word again.. With all the scientific research to backup all the bogus claims of being "twice as good"

Wait... there is no third party testing going on here to support the claims... silly me :rolleyes:

Best-Smest. Save some money and get the most popular, BEST selling filter for 9 years now on the Duramax.
