If your lift pump on your 04 is still original, i wouldn't run any more than the 7-micron from Fleetguard.

Dyed off road fuel is the same as taxed on road fuel. They just add a dye. I recommend the WIX XE filters or Donaldson Endurance fuel filters. Fleetguard is also a solid choice.

I prefer the Donaldsons.

I thought that On-road diesel HAD to be ULSD, i filled up today($140) and the pump said 500ppm, but every other gas station in town says 15ppm. I thought they all were changed, and they just forgot to put out the new sticker.

LSD can be sold for on road use until 2010 so long as 80% of all diesel sold for on road use is ULSD.

:agree2: I run the Baldwin very good filter. Cloggs up a little faster but I would rather it in the filter than the injectors.

What about a Napa Gold...(whoever makes that)? Is it a good filter? I don't have many places around where I live to get filters, but I do have a Napa very close to me. What Napa part number would that be? For my 'o3

I think Wix makes them for NAPA and they are pretty good filters IIRC

Napa Gold 3585- 10 microns
Napa Gold 3585XE- 7 microns

They are Wix filters. I have been running them for years and switched over to the the XE version as soon as it became available. I save money by ordering them in bulk from fleetfilter.com.

Which would be better to use with a stock lift pump? 10 or 7 micron?

Sorry to hijack the thread.

the 7 also change the filter by Gage it will run about 10 lbs when the filter starts to drop the pressure under load about 4 lbs then change filter

Since his truck is an 04, and like I asked previously, if his lift pump is on the filter canister (OEM), then he would be lucky to see 5 psi at idle running the 5-micron Baldwin. When i switched from the 10-micron Fleetguard to the 7-micron fleetguard i saw an immediate 1-2 psi drop depending on demand with the new 7-micron and can pull it down to 1-2 PSI when i get on it hard. I had a higher PSI with the 10-micron that had around 15,000 miles on it. If your lift pump has been moved to the fuel tank, then you could get away with running the Baldwin 5-micron from what I have read in the previous past from others that have the intank lift pump. I just wouldn't risk it on the canister mounted lift pump.

This is just my opinion of course.
