Every other oil change, I empty the water seperator before and after snow season. I always check the secondary filter on top of the engine while changing the oil filter.

I too change my fuel filters every other oil change but I drain the water separator every oil change. I always use Motorcraft filters and get them wherever I can get them the cheapest which is usually online via eBay, etc.

I usually shop on diesel-filters.com - $39.95 and 16.25. Shipping is usually reasonable.

Sometimes (but not always) Amazon can be cheap too, especially if you have Prime for free 2-day shipping.

You should never be going over 5k on oil in a diesel let alone a HEUI based truck...
