Fuel filter set on Amazon

So I'm almost at 5k miles on my 16 3500 CCLB SRW. My plan is to change oil every 5k and fuel filters every 10k. I will average about 10k miles a year. I've seen that many buy filters online due to them being cheaper. I called around to multiple dealerships and they all wanted $80 per fuel filter.

I checked online and found this set on Amazon for 86$ with shipping. Have any of you used this seller? They look to be a dealership but who knows.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MG...A1A774T62R7DQE

I know of Genosgarage but it's almost an additional 50$ more than this set. I know I got 5k miles to wait but I wanted to have a set on hand incase of bad fuel.

Thanks!

Looks like these are genuine Mopar parts. I don't understand how they are selling this set for that price, and coming from a dealership. What's going on here. Are we being gouged by our dealerships. Maybe techs working at dealerships can let us know.

I don't work at a dealership but I can let you know - the answer is yes. Some of the biggest parts sellers on Amazon and Ebay that have the very best prices are legitimate dealers. They've realized they can make a bundle on online parts sales by keeping their prices very competitive. Since they are running it through these other vendors they don't have the expense of hosting their own complex site; and they just have to have one of the parts guys handle the orders.

On two separate occasions I have bought new cars and ordered new mats, etc from a rival dealership while waiting on the paperwork. The "normal" dealerships just shrug and say our prices are ridiculous, buy elsewhere.

great price on fuel filters (if OEM), but changing fuel filters early only does one thing, it waist money.

really same with changing oil early. Waist of money.

but if you only put 10K on per year, and plan on changing oil at 5K, that IS the factory recommendation (every 15K OR 6 months, which ever is first).

The oil companies needed to make more money, which requires them to sell more oil, so how do they do it? major advertisement campaign telling you its in your best interest to change your oil early.

Always get a good laugh out of these paranoid alarmist posts.

Manufacturer guidelines an all vehicles has gone up dramatically in recent years. Even gas cars have gone from 3k to 7.5k, partially due to synthetic oils. I guess the oil companies didn't realize that synthetics would cause them to sell less oil...

I ordered from that seller in June. They are the correct Mopar filter. The price has went down a bit. I paid $101. That's the best deal I have seen on Mopar filters. As for changing the fuel filters at 10k I don't think that is necessary I would just stick to the 15k. I stick to the 6 month oil change. Usually 12k miles.

I've ordered from that seller twice as well. No problems and they are genuine filters.
