    I have a 13BT and I was wondering what the factory recommended fuel filter change intervals are. I was told tonite every 6 months or 5,000 km is that right?

    I use PetroCan diesel

    The 3B "maintenance procedure" manual talk about 48 000km or 36 month.

    I personaly change it every 2 oil change ... so ± 12 000km.

    I change mine when I see black smoke on heavy acceleration. Usually when it get to be embarassing already.
