Service intervals

i know there has got to be a thread already on this, but i can not find it.

would it be recommended for me to change my oil filter with every oil change? or will every other suffice?

secondly, should i change my primary and secondary fuel filters every other oil change or every time i change the oil?

thank you gentlemen.

I dont want to speak for everyone else on this but I change my oil filter with every oil change. To be safe with my sensitive 6.0 I change my oil and filter every 3000 miles (when not towing). I usually do my fuel filters every 12,000 miles.

oil and filter every 5k and fuel filters every 15 or sooner for me (we have clean fuel)

if you order ahead from diesel filters online.com you will save some coin

I change my oil and oil filter every 5,000 miles. I do the fuel filters every other oil change just to be safe.

this is kinda the gist of what i have been able to research. i pull a tandem axle with load weighing approx 8000lbs probably twice a month, other than that i drive just a couple miles to work then back home..

what i am getting at is that i dont work the truck, motor hard. unless i happen to pull up beside an import car at the light. (on a closed street with full safety gear)

I never tow and very rarely haul anything with my truck. I drive it 12 miles to work every few days where it will sit for up to 4 days. My point being, i'm not very hard on my truck either but I love fresh fluids and filters.
