Is the 6.7 expensive to maintain?

I've got a 6.0 and I can't beleive how much the filters cost and how often they need to be replaced. Was asking some of my work associates about their trucks (Dodges and GM's) and their maint. cost are about half of the 6.0 powerstrokes, and it seems most of it is due to the substantially higher filter costs like oil and fuel. How about the 6.7 is it any cheaper to change the oil and fuel filters for example?

Plus with the 6.7L you have to add Urea into the cost.

I agree, diesels are expensive to maintain, but remember that maintenance is the key to keeping them running.

Fandini, learn where to buy your filters and you won't be saying the 6.0 is too expensive to maintain.

Buy your Racor fuel filters from an International dealer for just under $40 for the two.

For your oil filters, the Fram at wally world is made by Racor and is the exact same filter in the motorcraft box next to it. It's $17 and the Motorcraft is like $19 or $20. If it makes you feel better to buy the Motorcraft filter go for it, but they're the same.

As long as your put nothing but Racor manufactured filters in your truck you're golden. Ford charges around $90 for the same exact fuel filters International sells for the exact same HFCM on their VT365 applications.

I think the Urea adds about a premium of 1 cent per gallon of diesel fuel. I know Pilots have pumps selling the stuff for $2.79/gallon
