Oil change, oil filter, fuel filter 01 f250 7.3

It's getting that time again to replace fluids. I plan on going with rotella 15w-40, motercraft oil filter and fuel filter. Was wondering where everyone got theirs and how much. Always get mine by the 5 gallon from SAMs club and then filters from parts store. Need to save a little cash this time so was wondering best place online or parts store was the best price. Thanks

Just saw online that Tractor Supply Co has 5 gallon buckets of Rotella on sale for $54 for Thanksgiving. Oil filters are cheapest at Walmart.

I get my oil from the AutoZone I work at. T6 costs $27.99/gal there but I markdown the price to $21.36/gal since thats what the local Walmart sells it for. I get the Mobil 1 filter. I think I paid about $10 for it after my discount. Fuel filters are about $25 after my discount too.

^^ not even 10 bucks for a FL1995 (18 microns absolute) is a great deal!

I usually get my fuel filters online a lot cheaper than the stores...even with shipping.

I run the Donaldson P550437 fuel filter, 5 microns at 95%. Pretty good and usually reasonably priced.

Do you have cold winters where you are? Might want to go to a 10 weight or even 5 weighted oil so it flows easier when it's cold.

I would (and do) run a 5/40 year round. T-6 should be 19-22 depeding where you live. Filters, get a ford at walmart or dieselfiltersonline.com

I buy them by the boxes so online works for me! If you in a REALLY cold area 5/30 diesel will be ok too!
