Changing Lower Fuel Filter PITA..Helpful Hints
So I changed my fuel filters myself last night for the first time (truck only has 22134 miles & dealer did first change for free). The lower filter was a huge PITA! I now have diesel fuel all over my shop floor & I did a good job of getting myself covered too. Getting the socket around everything and getting the cap off & then back on is no easy task. I got it done but I'm sure there are many helpful ideas out there to make this job easier and cleaner. Whoever came up with putting the filter where it is should be shot.
By the way, I only run Chevron or 76 fuel and although the lower filter was dirty (but not overly) the upper filter was pretty clean. I think running top tier fuel makes a difference.
Lastly, what is the best way to clean up diesel fuel from a cement floor.
