Right now I am running a Napa fuel filter and have been for about 30,000 miles. Has anyone had issues with Napa filters? And what other filters should i consider.:$:

Donaldson are real nice filters, and i sure hope your are changing your filter more often then every 30,000miles.

Last time I did mine I went with a NAPA, and it seems fine. I change it every 15,000, give or take a few.

I change my fuel filter every 5000-7500 miles depending on the season, shorter intervals in the winter. I swear the Northeast gets the worst fuel in the country. The Baldwind filter I use clogs up fast but I would rather it in the fuel filter then in my injectors.

Thanks for all the good info, i think i will continue to run the Napa until i can afford a by-pass fuel filter for extra protection..:$:

That is almost like changing the toilet paper in the restroom every time you visit the restroom, just to make sure you don't run out. On the other hand you are supporting your local parts store.

Agreed...I've got 4,000mi on a Baldwin and my FP is dropping. Don't think it'll make it to 6,000...can't imagine going 30,000!
