Fuel Filters: Napa VS Alliant Power

Thought I would share this tid bit of info to help save all of us some money...

Note: Alliant Power products are OEM quality and can be found at many Diesel Supply Stores. I purchased mine form Turbo & Diesel Injection in Indianapolis.

The filters that were removed from my F-350 were from Ford. The Alliant Power filters and the Ford filters are 100% identical.

Alliant Power Filter
P/N: PF F4604 (replaces OEM part number FD4604)
Construction: paper pleated material fins with spun fiberglass overlay
Cost: Around $40 for the pair (primary and secondary)


Napa Pro-Select (Napa Brands)
P/N: SFI23899 (Supposedly "OEM" quality)
Construction: Pleated paper fin
Cost: $53


Napa Gold Filer (WiX)
P/N: FIL3899
Construction: Pleated paper fin
Cost:$85.00 for the pair (primary and secondary)

I believe Alliant Power is the same quality as Motorcraft.

Hence, I give you the Motorcraft picture:

Re: Fuel Filters: Napa VS Alliant Power

My last Motorcraft fuel filters were $39.99 with free USPS Priority mail. I bought 4 sets but the guy I bought mine from still has 1 set left (the ebay ad) for the same price if anyone's interested I just cannot justify buying more than 4, lol. I won't pay more than $40 for a set no matter what thanks to Ebay- you can buy anything on Ebay, lol!

Current- 2006 Harley Davidson Edition F250 6.0L w/a "BUILT" engine, Unfortunately mis-assembled and installed by CenTex Diesel and a NAPD Heavy Hauler RACE SERIES Transmission

Re: Fuel Filters: Napa VS Alliant Power

First post so hey.

I just bought Napa filters and for whatever reason they look exactly like the alliant ones pictured. Maybe it's different here in Canada but they definitely don't look like the ones you have pictured from Napa.

Re: Fuel Filters: Napa VS Alliant Power

See the membrane on the larger Alliant and Motorcraft filter? It is very important for filtering, and I would stay away from any filter that does not have it (i.e. Napa).

Yep, the one from Napa that I picked up looks EXACTLY like the one with the membrane.
