Can You BELIEVE The Cost Of Filters....

I have always ran Motorcraft filters on everything I have ever had (even the one non Ford) and I always would buy my fuel filters from Advance Auto. Well last time I went to buy a set, they are no longer carrying them. I figured this may be due to not a lot of sales of Motorcraft fuel filters, but I think I have a better idea about why. I went to the local dealership to pick me a set of filters and $78.90 WTF As if these trucks didnt already cost enough to maintain.... now its 80 bucks for fuel filters, and I didn;t like paying $50.


Just had to vent a little.... Aggrivating crap

Ive never paid more than 60 bucks for motorcraft fuel filters from the dealer.

Go to the navistar dealer and get Racor's. Make sure they are Racors though. Alot of them are carrying luberfiners for fuel filters now
