Which fuel filter is best?

I've been doing some online searching on this website, google, and manufacturer sites but its hard to find good information.

Which fuel filters does everyone run and what type of mileage do you get? any information like efficiency and micron of filtration would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

I have a wix in it now, and it is a 14 micron filter, the baldwin one is a 7 micron. I'm just looking for a good filter to keep the sh*t out of my engine and keep her alive as long as i can.

did you notice any differences with the truck? or am I over analyzing this whole filter thing?

I did so many things in one week, muffler delete, DIY intake, New fuel filter, fuel lubricant, new tires and waxed it, I don't know what to credit anything to. I think any good filter will do if you change it & make sure you buy your fuel from a truck stop or high volume place that offers quality fuel. Keep your tank as full as possible in the winter months etc...
Just like oil. Some guys try to squeeze every mile out of it, I just run Rotella non-synthetic & giggle when it comes out golden after 3000 miles.

A 7 micron filter sounds better than a 14 though.
