mine always showed a little bit of yellow. How many miles did you use the filter, because mine has ~60000 MILES and never moved. Maybe the filter minder is faulty.

depends where you drive farmboy, lots of gravel roads would probably go through filters quicker of course, where as pavement will take a lot longer to go through one

Filter minder will move slowly until it gets fairly close to being full. The OEM Dondaldson Powercore can hold 3+ lbs of dirt and others have reported going 80K miles before changine.

Somebody who knows please correct me if need be, but I changed mine at 60,000 and I didn't need to. The instrument panel has an icon that will tell you when, and the filter minder should reflect that also. So changing it early is just kind of throwing away good money. I drive on lots of dirt roads, so I just figured it was due, the filter needed changing a lot more on my 7.3. This Donaldson filter is great.
