Best oil and fuel filters, both quality and cost

Looks like I will be buying tools that are new to me to keep my truck healthy.

Now I need to get set up with good oil and fuel filters.

Which are the best overall?

Which are the best value, even if only from a particular source?

Just use motorcraft filters. Really can't go wrong there.

dclack is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Most will agree that the Donaldson DBL7405 is the best filter, but everybody will have a different opinion on oil. I just buy the Delo400 at Costco whenever it goes on sale. The DB7405 is larger than a stock filter and does hang below the oil pan about 1-2". If you you don't like that, then just get the Motorcraft filter.

Donaldson is the one I use.
Just thought I would add these pics, it is large but an excellent filter.

+1 Here Donalson 7405 (Elf7405), Rotella T6 5-40 every 4000 miles. T6 is shipped to your door for 19.57 a gallon off amazon. Can't go wrong there.

I run the Donaldson as well; fyi the last one I purchased was blue. Seems they modded their product line. As far as lube oil goes I run Rotella conventional.
