Umm... the acid wasn't measured Mike. Those are the reference numbers in that column. The oil is black and has been since about 2 weeks after i put it in, my '96 was the same way. The soot levels are good they are rated as B in the bottom section which means low to moderate.

Chris,
I'm about to install the GDP 2 micron system on my truck but tell me more about this amsoil fuel filter(micron rating, etc.) Is it a drop-in filter? Looking for best fuel filtration for our finicky 3rd gen injectors.They need really clean fuel for longevity.
Andy

It's just a drop in to the stock setup instead of using the fleetguards.I believe they are 4 micron.

My oil is black after the first startup and level check, just changed my oil after 16,000 km. when I changed the oil I put a new fs2500 filter element in. At 142,XXXkm I switched from Castrol GTX 15-40 to Valvoline Blue 15-40. Haven't had an oil analysis done, was thinking about getting one done.

Interesting, that Amsoil fuel filter is also made by Donaldson. Donaldson only makes a 7 micron drop fuel filter for the 2003-07 Common rails.
The best drop in fuel filter you can buy for the 2003-07 5.9L Cummins is the 5 micron Baldwin. The latest Fleetguard drop-in equivalent is only rated at 7 micron.
That means that Amsoil fuel filter is very average & way overpriced.


I also recommend adding some additional fuel filtration. IMO even the 5 micron Baldwin is inadequate for the CR injectors.
There are tons of filter options but the Glacier kit is awesome & the stock engine mounted Cummins lift pump will push thru it with no issues.
The Glacier kit is easy to install & easy to service.
The big lines & fittings are high quality & it's an easy & ideal time to install post filter fuel pressure gauge at the same time.

http://www.glacierdieselpower.com/pr...id=MK20306-BLK


The Glacier kit comes with a huge Fleetguard fuel filter rated at 5 microns (not 2 microns as Fleetguard states) but the Donaldson & Cat equivalents are better, rated at 2 microns.
Again with careful shopping I was able to buy about 8 Donaldson 2 micron fuel filters shipped to Montana for about US$10 each.
I also run the much cheaper Fleetguard drop-in 7 micron fuel filter.
It's about C$15 locally at Cummins.


BTW, I'm getting my info from AH64ID's excellent spreadsheet he put together for Cummins fuel filters.
