fuel filters

I have heard that its important to stick with ford fuel filters.... Is this true? If so is there a better place to buy/order filters thats cheaper than what Ford charges. My local dealer is charging $80 for the set.... is that about right?

Try these

I've been using these for 3 years without any issues and they are lessexpensive.

to save 30 bucks every other oil change...its not worth it to me to even take the risk, so I use ford fuel filters. My local goodyear has them for a little less than that. I would say that isn't a bad price

Advanced Auto if you have any of those around you, or any other store like an Autozone or something should have them. I know I can get a Motorcraft set at Advanced auto for $50.
