    Due to various comments on this forum, I just changed my fuel filter on my '17 ED at 16K miles. Seemed to be the idea that oil filter changes should be at 8K with fuel filters every other change. I used Mopar branded filters and got the pair for $69 on Amazon. YMMV.

    Just changed my oil and fuel filter yesterday at the 40,000 mile mark, 30,000 miles on the fuel filter. No water in the fuel filter, was absolutely no sediment either, but all of my diesel comes out of my 275 gallon bulk tank through a 2 micron filter before it ever hits my truck's tank. Good to know it's working. Mopar fuel filter was slightly black, though. Was surprised how long it took for the oil to drain! Even after 1 hour oil was still dripping into the pan!

    Money in their pocket, next thing you know, they’ll want you to come in every 3k miles.
