    Default Best Fuel Filter brand or all the same?

    Is there a better fuel filter or are they about the same like the napa vs the fram vs the deutsch etc

    Thanks!

    Not sure, have you been reading Consumer Reports or something like that recently? haha I usually use just one of the cheaper brands, whatever is on sale.

    LOL!

    No I was looking to buy one and they prices went from $3 to $16 and I was wondering if it was really worth it.

    I dont mind spending the money if it works just hate to waste it.

    There might be something worth it, maybe. I bought the more expensive home air filters on the advice of a friend of mine who does HVAC. Maybe the more expensive oil filters really do clean more of the dirt and other stuff out of the oil???

    as long as you plan to change it at regular intervals you can get away with the cheaper ones
