Fuel filter change today, lots of crud.

Replaced the fuel filters today and was amazed, and slightly disgusted, by the amount of dirt and crap that came out when I removed the fuel/water drain plug.
Probably going to change them with every oil change just to keep an eye on things.

How long were they in there? Every oil change??? that is way too much for man and many. I change mine at every 10,000 miles. Ford spec is 10,000-15,000.

Use some diesel kleen white bottle every so fill ups to keep you system clean.

Not if you're getting crap fuel with solids in it. Thats what the filters are for. If you're buying diesel at the same place every time its time to find a new place to fill up. There is a lot of crap fuel out there.

Yeah... curious as to how many miles went on those filters? I just changed mine out this weekend after 30,000+ miles. Kind of expected to see some gunk and discoloration but everything came out clean... was pleasantly surprised. Not sure I could afford changing out the fuel filters every 10,000 though. I paid $86 at the dealership.

I'm not sure how long the filters were in there as I didn't keep good records until recently. I'm going to change the oil and filters at the same interval until I get good, somewhat clean, fuel out of the drain. Since I use the truck mainly for hauling the boat and runs to Home Depot, it's not that frequent an expense.
