also changed out my fuel filters when I did the plug. Changed the top one and the bottom one.

Here is a picture of the bottom one spread open. There was all sorts of little junk in some of the fins.

Lucky you haha I had so much trouble getting mine out, ended up buying an easy-out bit and just barely fitting the drill over the stupid stupid driveshaft. Did not enjoy that "job" one bit!

I thought all F250s had plastic fuel tanks? Do you perhaps have a steel midships fuel tank? That filter has the looks of aluminum powder - sometimes the indication of a delaminating fuel tank. Very nasty looking filter. How did the upper filter look? Are you running a fuel pressure gauge (FP)? Good idea to watch that FP with a filter that looked like that especially.

Glad you didn't wait any longer!

Upper one looked great, no junk in it all all.

I have no gauges until after xmas. Hoping to get that as a gift

I have never seen the lower filter taken apart from the water membrane. Next one I change I'll need to take a look see.

Luckily I was able to get my drain plug out the other day with no issues after my water in fuel light came on although it did take some finesse! Changed over to the updated drain plug as well!
