In 2013 Ram went to a two filter setup with the primary fuel/water separator being chassis mounted above and forward of the rear axle and the secondary fuel filter still being up front in the canister on the back of the engine. If you buy the recommended brands of filters, you now get better filtration than prior models, however, now the issue is the combined cost of these two filters. These recommended filters cost anywhere between $125-175 to replace at a recommended 15,000 mile interval if you do it yourself. After making many phone calls around the country, dealers are getting upwards of $300 just to change the fuel filters on these trucks. Ridiculous!
We have not only come up with a solution for the high cost, we have also made it very simple for guys that would normally take it into the dealership, to do themselves in under 10 minutes easily saving them a couple hundred dollars every 15,000 miles.
Why we use the CAT filter in our kits.
CAT fuel filters are made to the highest level of quality in a factory specifically designed to produce 'zero-tolerance' filters. CAT built this factory that completely manufactures the filter without a human being touching it, because filter manufacturing can be very tedious and boring, resulting in human error. The results of this factory process are a true, 2 micron fuel filter removing 2 micron and larger particles with over 98% efficiency. Not only do these high-efficiency fuel filters protect our trucks better than stock, they are also readily available and very affordable in most towns around the country. If you are more remote and don't have a Caterpillar dealership nearby, they can be easily be found online or right here on our Filters & Parts page delivered right to your door.
With our kit we give you:
- Better than stock filtration for added protection.
- Very affordable filter changes that are completed in minutes without even opening the hood.
- Easy 30 minute installation with absolutely no drilling or cutting of anything.
- Completely reversible back to stock in minutes.
Our kit and how it will save you money
Because of the new fuel system design starting in 2013 we wanted to retain the stock rear water-separator having the heating element and WIF (water in fuel) sensor. With our kit we add the Cat 1-R0750 filter right beside it to give you the best filtration you can possibly have, all at the rear of the truck in an easy to get to location. Once our kit is installed, you will only need to change the forward filter under the hood every 2-3 years because of algae growth that will appear on it over time from todays increasingly bad fuel.
**With our kit, you will spend approximately $70-80 per filter change saving around 50%. This cost will change both rear filters at 15,000 mile intervals.*
Easy installation, but even easier removal.
Our fuel filter kit was designed to be initially installed in under 30 minutes, but to then be completely removed in only 10 minutes should you want to pull it for any warranty work you may need done to be completely untraceable at the dealer. Most dealerships have absolutely no problem with added fuel filtration. It utilizes the stock, already there push-button quick disconnect fuel fittings for an easy installation and removal.
* PLEASE NOTE: These '13-'18 Cummins Filter Kits were designed and manufactured for the 2013-2018 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesel 2500 & 3500 non cab-chassis trucks. This filter kit mounts towards the rear of the truck underneath beside the stock water-separator filter. If your fuel tank is between the frame rails at the very back end where a spare tire would normally mount, this is a cab-chassis style and this kit will not fit.
