Could dealer have not changed Fuel Filters?

So I changed the fuel filters on 10/7/2010 at 29,190 miles and they looked like this.



I changed them again on 11/5/2011 at 39,118 miles and they looked like this.



Now I bought this truck from my father in-law who bought it new and had it serviced by the dealer from day one. I do not have the receipts but I can tell you that if the dealer said you should change the filters then he paid them to do so.

So that's what 29,190 miles on fuel filters looks like. Your 10,000 mile filters look like mine did.

Maybe some bad fuel sometime during the 29,190 miles.

I changed mine recently right after I bought the truck and the one on the frame rail wasn't a motorcraft/racor and didn't have that little nipple with the O-ring on it. That one looked fine (probably because it may not have been doing anything) and the one next to the oil filter was trashed like the your first one.

Yea I guess I'm just glad that I caught it and changed them myself. For the folks that have the dealers do them maybe you should visually confirm that the filters are changed and the water dumped. It's a PITA job but doable in your driveway.
