I could be wrong but the recommendation on how frequently to change the filter in that video seems to be wildly inaccurate. Way too frequent. Maybe I misheard but I thought he said to change the water/fuel separator filter every two fuel fill ups. I thought the schedule was to change it at 15,000 miles.

Well I own a 17 now and all I can tell you is I'm going to change it every 10,000 miles just like my 16 Upstate New York fuels ridiculously dirty although I must admit the new filter seems like it will do a much better job than the old spin on canister. It really depends on the area you're located in some people have even claimed that they don't need to add any additive in the winter time for fuel gelling don't try that up here one 12 degree night and you'll be stuck lol good old New York State highest taxes on fuel and the worst conditioned fuel take care

Believe he said drain the water (or check for water) every other tank or after each tank of fuel.

Hey! We here in PA have you beat in fuel taxes, we are #1.

The thing with fuel filters, I believe, is that you may never have any meaningful amount of contaminants or you might get a heap on the very next fill. Personally, I have never seen enough junk to warrant a filter change, but who knows what tomorrow will bring.

I started using an additive after getting low cetane fuel that had My 6.7 sounding like a 7.3.

I think instead of him talking about how to disconnect and reconnect the fuel lines, he could have actually walked thru it step by step, removing and reconnecting.

True that, but then he would need to figure out how to hold the camera (phone in this case) with his third hand. My (minor) gripe is why do so many people shoot photos/video in portrait versus landscape? Do televisions, movie screens, desktops & laptops have their screens oriented portrait?

1) Yes, and it's been standard practice for years with vehicles that use an electric fuel pump.

2) It's a closed fuel system. Air is purged back into the tank via the return line where it bubbles to the top to mix with the other air. The idea is to get most of the air out so your injectors don't see air. I don't think they've had a schrader valve on the fuel system since 97.

605ma is starting off with a positive reputation.
on my pervious 6.7 power stroke, the Plastic fuel filter that sits on the "top-side" had 2 inlets and outlets, on my 2017 F250 the plastic in line has 3 inlet/outlet, 2 look identical to the pervious and a third is thinner/ smaller? my question I guess is what purpose does it serve? why make the change? just trying to understand how it works.
thank you,

thank you,
I've seen that new vehicle engine-side filters have 3 ports, replacement, even motorcraft OEM have only 2.

This was for 2016 and before, probably still holds true for the 2017.
