All Workhorse had to do was add a tee into the line after the "normal filter" and they would not have needed to design or use a filter with only one source. I spent 40 years in business and we would do anything possible to avoid a single sourced item.

Anyway, I also have a spare from Dale.

Here is one with only 10,000 miles on it.

</div></BLOCKQUOTE>

With only 10,000 miles that filter has had as much gas passe thru as it would have had with 30 to 40,000 miles if it was in your family car.

It's a little scary to think 1 gal of gas has to pass thru that, in as little as 3 miles when you're climbing mountains.

I'd like to take this opportunity to
thank Dale again for noticing that I put my adaptor on backwards. He noticed this from a simple picture I took after the installation.
How many other places would make a long distance call to tell their customer that?

Thanks Max... But, I need to correct your statement. The adapter was installed correctly as it can only be install one way... you just had you fuel filter on backwards.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">The T filter offers one less connection and it meets the standard set forth by GM and Workhorse engineering for the returnless fuel system. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Although this is a true statement you failed to state that you need to open 3 connections each time the WHFF is replaced and only 2 with the adapter installed. The bottom line is that you actually have 1 less connection to fail/leak AFTER the adapter is installed.

One other thing we fail to observe with the WHFF installed and the fuel rail at pressure is the fuel pump continues to operate. But, because of the fuel pressure differential (90 psi on the pump and 55-62 psi on the fuel rail) you have constant flow of fuel from the tank, to the filter and back to the tank. Why is this important? Because, with the old style filter you had 30-40' of fuel line in each direction this means that less fuel is filtered multiple times but hot fuel is returning to the tank. With the new filter you have probably 2x or more fuel going through the filter but no heat soak. So the bottom line is, you don't have hot fuel going to the pump that is cooled by the fuel in the tank and should you get a bad load of fuel you will be sitting on the side of the road sooner. This why I change my filter every year and THROW the old one in the trash.

So then the bottom line for this discussion is that one should be able to purchase a replacement filter at a reasonable cost at any parts store in any town USA as was done with these coaches in the past...so fix it, so that this can be accomplished without RV owners having to do something about it themselves. Well, if I'm reading this correctly, it seems like a reasonable argument to me.

tropical36,

I offer the 1 WHFF for $45 plus $10 S/H or $100 for 2 shipped to you Priority Mail. I consider that reasonable when you consider that I have to buy or more cases at a time. But, you can go to a WHSC and pay $77 or more and wait 4 or 5 days to get it.

And yes the price went up $5 per filter. Why... my cost with S/H went up.

Exactly, it was the filter I had on backwards. Thanks for noticing and letting me know.

now ed, with that dancing clown in your post I almost feel this will disappoint you but the filter was brand new, so the answer is 'no', it did'nt put dirty fuel back in the tank, sorry.

Max49: it is a "jester" and is meant to convey that my comment, addressed to Dale, was "in jest", in other words, not meant to be taken seriously. ED.

O come on now, you guys still don't know how to take me? I can give it or take it, it's all fun and my comment was in jest too.
I was so proud on my fuel filter adapter installation that I posted the pic of it . Then Dale crushed me. But I'm glad he did,I'd rather have the fuel goin the right way. I can laugh at myself too

Looks like a fuel filter adapter is the way to go. Can someone tell me about changing a filter? Will there be gas running out all over? How much gas will I lose? Any good tips? Any cautions or problems starting the engine after changing the filter?
