For those of you with diesel tow rigs. Change your fuel filter every 15k miles or every year which ever comes first. Same schedule for your rear diff.

Bought my Dodge used (2nd owner) and even though I serviced it I recently replaced all of the 6 injectors. Changing of the filter can prolong this ordeal.

Now Jim I do agree with you on that except if your buying fuel at a bunch of different places I change my fuel filter every oil change for 23 dollars it is worth it and you will usually pick back up a mile or two to a gallon with a clean filter.

Thanks for the maintenance tip. I used to wait 16-18 months before I do the filter stuff but since I tried your tip, my vehicle is performing differently -- in a good way, of course.
