    Has anybody used this fuel filter as a replacement or know anything about it? Probably time to replace the fuel filter and wanted to see if I can go with this one or if I need to double down the money and get a Mopar OEM one.

    I may go OEM anyways because of warranty and not wanting the dealership to throw a hissy fit should anything go wrong. But it’s a good question to ask regardless.

    Thank you!

    I get new tires on Thursday so I’ll ask my mechanic what he used last time we changed my fuel filter.

    Aside from the Wix being a 4 micron filter and the Mopar a 3 micron filter, which is barely splitting a hair is the construction of the Wix.
    The Wix appears to be just a pleated filter. The Mopar has a solid like surface which I believe is a coalescing filtration, that is what drives any water out of the fuel. I'd spend the extra $$ for the Mopar, water in the fuel system isn't a good thing and injectors/HPFP are not cheap.
