I buy mine from Mid-South Cummins here in Central Arkansas. Runs about $42 for the Fleetguard. Guy at the counter thought it was the entire assembly for that price until he pulled it. His comment when he opened it to look and check it "that is a damn rip off".

it is a rip-off.. Cummins/fleetguard makes them for probably a buck each (parts and labor) and sells them for close to 50..

To the OP, doesn't the '12 have 2 filters like the 13-14?

No, the 2012's have only one fuel filter, that is under the hood. Fleetguard FS43255 or the upgraded fuel filter FS53000.

Dangit

So if the 12's have a single filter and are surviving, why is it that we don't have a longer change interval for the engine mounted filter -- say 2:1 to the rear frame filter?

^^^, If I had to speculate, the reason is that the rear fuel filter catches more, sooner, and the front filter stays cleaner from what I've read. NOT that I know first hand thou. I change yearly, due to not seeing 15,000 miles per year. At any rate, cheap insurance changing a fuel filter or 2, for what these trucks cost. Preventative maintenance is 100% better than a trip to the dealer for an issue, IMO.

No worries on my part changing both at the intervals, although logic would seem to indicate that the first filter (rear frame) would catch most of the crap and the second (engine mount), unless a finer micron level, would be more-or-less a second line of defense.

The new 5/3 micron fuel filter for a '13/14 will fit a '12 and is available on Ebay for $42 with free freight.

I use Baldwin fuel filters. Great filter (5 micron ) with a great price $42. Part number ph9870 for the 2011 model. Mopar filters are 7 micron and do not meet cummins specs and wix (napa) are 12 micron rated. Junk

It's probably different for the newer trucks, but for the 07.5-10 6.7s the napa gold/wix filter p/n 3733 is a 5 micron glass media filter. Not sure if this one will fit a 2010-2012 truck though.
