fuel filter system upgrade?

i've been changing my fuel filter every other oil change, but was wondering if there are any upgraded fuel filtering systems out there for the 7.3? like possibly a secondary fuel filter i could add somewhere?

One thing better, build yourself a regulated return setup for your truck. It will quiet it down alil bit and maybe even help you out on fuel econ alil bit maybe. Theres a few threads on here that talk bout building one for the 7.3

The Dahl set up is a marine grade fuel filter...polly the best set up over all. Great water stripper, filters down to 2 microns. Great set up..a little spendy though.

Personally, I would do the intank mods just so your not straining the pump with the new fuel filters.

Another option is to do this...

Welcome to guzzle's In-tank Hutch Mod Web Page

I plan on doing that with a Baldwin FB1311 base and BF1212 pre-pump filter and run 20-30k filter intervals.

That's what I'm doing, as well as a post pump filter, bowl delete, RR, etc.

I would love to do that but I am doing the poor man's RR (FRx) and keeping the stupid bowl. I doubt my truck will ever get tuned so a RR won't really benefit me that much.

When I did the H&H I added this "strainer" I had kicking around (I think we were using them on Kerosun Monitor heaters ) because the pump now needs some protection. It has only a SS screen in it, but finer than what I removed from the tank, a polycarbonate bowl, and a Great early indication of how clean the fuel is before the filter. I wish it had a drain in the bottom but, so far, haven't seen water in it (I can spin-off the bowl though).

Don't have a clue who makes it but, I'm sure something similar is out there and can't cost much....

Anyone ever tryed the finch ,drop it your tank solution?
I've seen other drop in the tank crystal solution as well. Its all about eliminating the water right.
Im spending more $ and getting bad fuel.
