Fuel filter debris?

I just changed my fuel filters tonight for the first time(15,000 miles) and the lower one in the frame had a bit of dirt and fine metal debris the upper was super clean is this normal? after seeing this maybe drop to 10k changes don't wan't no warranty issues even though it states change at 20k i was just used to 15k changes with the other truck.

I would do what your saying. I do my oil every 5k and fuel filters every 10k. Just take a note of what you seen maybe keep some of those metal debris on hand for the next time you change your filters. And if its the same thing then I would get it looked at. Just my .02

You never know what you are going to get out of the pumps at the stations.
Those with an external filter make me feel heaps better...

I think i am going to bag the lower filter and save it you can rub your finger across it and see small specs of metal. i guess we will see next time unless something bad happens in the mean time!
