7.3 fuel filter ???

There are so many different fuel filters and as many prices.
Ebay has best price but I am worried about there quality.
Is there a good filter that anyone can recommend ?

RiffRaff has the best price on oem fuel filters. I myself would NOT use anything but genuine Motorcraft filters

Re: 7.3 fuel filter ???

If you start switching between filter brands, watch the cap for the fuel bowl. The Motorcraft filter snaps into the factory cap, but many of the aftermarket ones come with their own cap attached to the filter. If you have a motorcraft filter and want to go with another brand, keep the original cap so you can go back later if you want. Mine had an aftermarket filter in it when I bought it, and I had to buy another cap to be able to go back to Motorcraft......

Re: 7.3 fuel filter ???

Mine also came with a aftermarket fuel filter on it. The Wix filter has done great and I have no complaints, I went back with a wix fuel filter at the last oil change because I didnt have a cap at the time.

Next oil change I will have a cap and filter from Riffraff ready to go on simply for the lower price and great filtration of the OEM from Riffraff.
