how much are 6.0 fuel filters supposed to cost?

I was in NAPA tonight picking up wiper blades and shocks. I told them to throw in a fuel filter as I figured it should be changed (truck is new to me with 175K). The house brand was 49.99. Holy smoke!! I am used to Cummins fuel filter which was about 10 bucks online from fleetguard.

Are 6.0 fuel filters really that much? How often should you change them?

Yeah they're a bit more $$$. I run the Wix (NAPA) filters as well, but I get them from fleet filter. Bunch cheaper there, and they ship to my door.

It actually should be two filters. I pay about $100 every 10k miles for mine from Ford. Then again I only use OEM filters.

Wow you are getting robbed. $100 for Motorcraft fuel filters?

You should shop here and save a little money. Even with shipping you'll save about $40...

According to website above, Racor makes the Motorcraft filter...but of course the Racor is cheaper. So are the Racor actually the same filters?
