6.0 liter Fuel Filter change

How often are my fellow 6.0 van owners changing the fuel filters?

I have heard every 15,000 is recommended at the most but every 10,000 for severe duty.

It takes a lot of will power to be good to that schedule when you have a van & have to deal with that upper filter! I have been a good boy about it but I cringe at the thought of removing all the stuff in the way.

I think It would be nice if we could Buy Just the frame mounted filter seperately & change that every 7500 or 10,000 & then do the upper one at 15,000

I have been doing it once a year since ownership (3 times). I cut the mount for the wiring harness a bit so that I can slide it out a bit easier (still a PITA). I suppose it is a little over 15K each time. They have been clear so far but I worry about tank delam. so I am sure to do it each year.

yea I had the Tank delam issue. The way I found out is that my frame mounted filter had a LOT of silver flakes in it. The Upper one never seen any so thats good.

Just changed out the filters again yesterday. This time I tried lifting the wiring harness up & removing the Power steering bracket. i did it without removing anything else but it was TIGHT & my Forearm is showing it. My 08 has both the 15/16 wrench fitting & a 1/2inch socket drive in the middle of the cap. I find the 1/2 drive way to be easier using a 3/8 ratchet & a adapter to up it to 1/2.

Both filters appeared fine.
