I have not changed my filter yet,but I have two of the newer style filters from Cummins. I will be changing them in the spring. This will be around 30,000 mikes, I change my diesel fuel filter every 10K.
I ordered the newer style 5 micron filter from Geno's. This last order from Geno's, I ordered the filter and housing along with a new replaceable filter. There is a cost savings of $10 by just replacing the filter and not the housing and filter. Per the TDR website the newer style filter is a little smaller in size and will not cover the entire filter base plate were the filter screws on.
I always purchase two filters at a time, one is carried as a spare in the truck at all times. I will then order two more from Geno's when I change that filter. This way I will always have spares when I need one.
