Those of you that have changed and inspected your fuel filters, did you find metal shavings? After reading some other forums besides this one it seems to happening to at least a few trucks. Just wondering how common this really is and if it's a precursor to the hpfp failure. Mine have not been changed yet but will be soon. I think Epic found nothing in his but how about others. Is Epics truck a 2011 job 1 truck? My truck is 05/10 build date with no problems yet.
My last filter change I did see some in the bowl. I saved the filter planning to cut it open for further inspection but haven't got around to it yet. I believe Darren was one person that had metal in there as well. 30k on mine and runs perfect

I had some small metal shavings that looked almost identical the one of the threads here. I did take it in to the dealer and Ford directed the dealer to do nothing. I found out later that this dealer has seen a few others and they believe it is likely trash from filling up.
