I obtained my oil filter for around 12 bucks and the fuel filter for around 80 from GM parts direct online. Delivered straight to my door in 2 days. Doesn't get any easier then that! All you need is the right part numbers and it's a piece of cake. It was a 10% cyber monday sale which basically made free shipping.Thanks for posting that information. I was wondering what it was using to determine that. I've been wordering why mine seems to drop so slowly, but I've been averaging just shy of 47 mpg for the life of my vehicle. So, I guess it makes sense that it's going to take me 45,000+ miles to use that much fuel at this rate.
80 bucks for the fuel filter? And I thought 22 dollars for the oil filter was expensive.
My bad. I meant gallons. 24 hours of traveling will do that to you.Two points.
1. It's gallons, not miles.
2. $80 part cost, but what is the labor cost if you are not a DIYer?
That depends on where the filter is at and how difficult it is to get to. Also, are there line purge requirements? Be interesting to see what the labor standard is for that operation. Granted, it's only likely to be needed every 45,000 miles or so, but no one likes to be surprised.I wonder what the cost will be as well. I couldn't imagine it costing more than $20 for them to install a fuel filter. Oil filter installations are almost free
