Thumbs up Filter change frequency?

I am looking for suggestions as to how frequently I should change my fuel filter's. i'm running into Airdog 4G with a cat 3645287 on it, and a Baldwin bf9882 in the stock location. I've read a ton of threads and there seems to be a pretty wide range of suggestions. I haven't read of anyone with my particular set up. Thanks for your time.

Not that shitty! Ha ha. I have a pressure gauge post filter, pre-CP3 and I've never seen a change, Other than when it gets real hot out.

Thanks for the move mod. I couldn't figure out where to put it. So you think every other oil change for both filters? And is that 5000 mile oil change intervals?

Thats ok, its what they want me to do. Roughly 5K for me. I increased the interval back when I was racing my truck.

I have to change mine every 5k as well, never make it past 8k w/o the filter plugging up.

Just put a cat 0751 on, it's big, should last a day or two.
