Make an account on photobucket to post pics, then just copy and paste the image code.
For fuel filters and oil filters I buy online. Diesel filters online is usually the cheapest.
Here is fuel filters for 52 bux.
[FD-4615]Ford 6.7 L Turbo Diesel fuel/water filter kit.(FD4615) - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks

I buy my fuel from a Kroger that has 6 diesel pumps! Its in a country area so they sell a lot of diesel. I have never once had a water in fuel light on any of our trucks filling up at big stations. I just try to stay away from the one pump diesel stations.

As long as its a station that sells a lot of fuel you will be ok

Make sure you drain your water separator every couple tanks

Congrats! I just bought my 2012 Lariat F350 in June (1st diesel) and love it. A friend of mine who is a Ford diesel mechanic said I didn't need to run the cetane as the motor is made to run on low sulfur. He told me to drain fuel separator every month, buy good fuel, change oil every 5,000 miles and fuel filters every 10,000 miles and the motor will do great. I plan on having a Ford dealer do all the maintenance as I am diesel challenged and hopefully make any warranty issues easier.
