Oil and fuel filter part numbers and prices
I was looking at Geno's to possibly save some money on future oil and fuel filters and by also not having to drive to my local Cummins West store, which happens to be about 40 miles away. But upon looking at the Geno's price chart and part numbers, I became a tad confused. I always install the Fleetgaurd Stratapore 3984 but Geno's says that not only is the 3984 right for the '98-'02 but that the 16035 is for the '89-'11 trucks as well.
I've never had anyone ask me at Cummins if I wanted the 16035. Not that I think this is a big deal but the 16035 is cheaper than the 3984..........by a dollar..........but a bucks a buck.
Especially when I used to buy these filters for about $8-$10 in the past five years and now they're $14. Whats the deal? Is everyone out to make not only a buck these days but more like a few bucks while their at it. Same goes for the fuel filter. Thats also now $14..........but I'm not complaining about that price to much since the dealer wants about $50 for the same part. Which is just crazy.
So does anyone have any better ideas as to where to get Fleetgaurd filters and what about those part numbers?????
