That filter sure looks like it is full of grease or oil. Agree it is distorted. Just does not look like a normal fuel filter.

Hi: shaggn85... I too am suffering the "Battle of the bulge". It's not my fuel filter that worries me it's my waist filler.

I like the 10k rated Ecoguard oil filters. But when it comes to fuel, only the Mopar. I'd prefer it not come from communist China but as long as its made to spec. I get them from RockAuto but they are now up to $37. All these created supply chain issues and this policy decisions made inflation is sickening to me.

If you can find oil or filters.

I'm done.
Interesting you mention that. I got word today that dealers (one dealer hasn’t done oil changes in 3 weeks) were running out of synthetic oil for engine oil changes. Called my local dealer and yep, they are almost out of synthetic but do have fuel filters in stock. Crazy times.

Try your local NAPA for Rotella T6. Mine has always been able to order for me even if none on his shelves.

I have been running Doc's Diesel Fuel Filters and there is no bulge. Changing every 5k and keep a spare on hand at all times!
