Don't know about all of them, but my Duramax and my Cummins now has a water separator fuel filter. I change them with every other oil change.

I remember once with the Duramax it shut down into limp mode on me on a trip and the driver information center said the filter needed changing. I had one with me, and I continue to carry a spare.

I always thought that all 150/1500 models were heavy halfs, as Chev named them. The half ton was the F100/C10/D100, at the time.

Half tons where so named because they where suppose to be able to haul a half ton. Most can haul more than that these days, but the names remained. It is a bit confusing, but it'd be even more confusing to undo 50 yrs of product branding.

Without something like SAE J2807 to compare trucks objectively, buying a tv can be a real challenge (as reflected in many of the posts in this forum).

Hi, I'm not a Diesel fan, as most of you already know, but for those who are, the Cummins Diesel in a Nissan will save that truck from extinction just like Cummins did for the Dodge.

My understanding is that, once everyone's selling 2015s, they're going to all be rated to SAE specs.

The GM 1/2 tons and big SUVs already are and the HDs should be for 2015. All of Ram's trucks are SAE rated. Toyota has been doing it for years. The 2015 F-150 will be as well. Nissan is doing it with the new Titan. The only ones I'm not positive about are the 2015 HD Fords.

That's certainly a step in the right direction.
