Doing my first fuel filter change...
I just changed the fuel filters on my "new to me" 2016 F350 CC Lariat SRW 6.7 and it was a breeze. Read a TON of posts (thanks everyone!) watched a bunch of videos (some good, some ridiculously bad) and figured it would be just as easy as it looked. No issues at all.
One thing I never saw in any of them was exactly how much diesel drains out when you do it. Being curious, I used a 2qt glass measuring bowl so I could see EVERYTHING that came out and to see just how much. The general consensus was to unscrew 3 times to close the valve (which worked perfectly), but I found out that if you unscrew 4 times, it drains MUCH faster!!
The filter under truck held almost exactly 5 cups and the one under the hood held just a little over a cup. Fuel was nice and clean, no water, no particles. Just as it should be!!
