Dirty fuel filter

So I just bought this truck at the beginning of March and was told that everything had just been changed (oil and filters) however I don't think that's the case now. I've only put 5k miles on it since I bought it. This is what the filter looked like compared to new. What do y'all think?? Is the just the average looking filter or was this one dirtier than should be expected?

how many total miles on the truck?....I would have to say you picked up some dirty fuel or the filters weren't change.........I changed mine last time at 17000 miles and they came out darn near spotless.

That filter looks nasty....Like stated above, you either got some bad fuel, or those filters were not changed when they told you.

Only have 38k on the truck. The primary on the frame wasn't half as bad as the one on top. Guess ill have a better idea in another 10k miles!

Those are dirty, I've seen filters with way over 10,000 miles on them and they look way better then the one you show, I would go back to the dealer and have him give you a free replacement... Less then 5,000 miles on them, I would say your the first to change them out.

it's like someone changed only the primary ?

I have changed filters prematurely ( 5k)after a road trip from AZ to Oregon and back

primary was nasty secondary spotless

my typical filter condition at 15k is both are spotless

I suspect I hit a low volume station or all the rain they get washes dirt into the storage tanks ?

Well, that made my mind up, I was going to order Fuel filters for my next oil change to T6, but screw it, going to buy them locally and change them real fast this weekend. I bought mine with 53K on it, told they were changed, Im not chancing it after seeing that.

Can't beleive that was the secondary, WOW.
