Fuel Filter

Is there a better fuel filter over the Motorcraft, or just get the stock Motorcraft? I have looked on Rockauto.com, and noticed several brands, also the stock one for 57., where Amazon wants 119.00.

I have used a Fram fuel filter with no problems nor form or fit problems. In appearance of both filters and o-ring, appear identical to the Motorcraft. Makes me wonder if Fram is making these for Ford.

I always use the Motorcraft, not enough price difference to even try anything else. I wouldn't use any fram filter if you gave me a truckload of them. Their oil filters are notorious for collapsing and causing engine damage. If their oil filters are garbage then I don't have any use for anything they have.

Not on a diesel but on a gas engine in my shop. Used a customer's fram oil filter that collapsed due to the cardboard ends. End result was a failed engine and an unhappy customer. Fram had actually examined that filter, acknowledged that it had collapsed and refused to make good on it. Had 2 customers since then that had lifters clicking and low oil pressure right after they changed oil and used a fram oil filter. On both of those the problem was fixed by just changing the oil filter. Drag racer I talked to at the track that changed the oil pump and tore down his new engine trying to get the oil pressure where it should be. Fixed that by replacing the fram oil filter with a different brand. He was a little surprised when he asked me "you know what it ended up being?" and I said a fram oil filter. Was on a forum a few years ago and there was a thread that must have been 15 pages long and the overwhelming majority of those were the same bad experiences with fram. So no, it's not a rumor I am passing on. It's a real thing that has actually got into my wallet.
