So, this got me thinking enough to ask the question as to whether anyone has looked into Fleetguard from Cummins for their application?

Having an 'in' for pricing may enable me to utilize their filters (depending upon application). These are the select filters for lube, fuel, air, coolant and hydraulic systems on Cummins fleet trucks (engines found in many makes of tractor-trucks like International, Western Star, Kenworth, Peterbilt, etc.)

The following website details everything to know about the products Fleetguard offers.

Fleetguard by Cummins

Click on the ‘Catalog’ tab to cross-reference your filter model number. You can also cross-reference by application. It doesn’t search up as broad by vehicle; however, it does a great cross-reference to AC Delco filter numbers which you can search up through their website first.

There is a wealth of information in the Literature section ('Lube' subsection) regarding Fleetguard technical information with a filter cutaway and explanation. I know for a fact these filters are made for everything from giant sized coffee-can dimensions, right down to ONAN diesel generator (lawn mower size) dimensions. From there, all one has to do is check for the nearest Cummins, International, Western-Star, etc., dealer and go price shopping! There is a handy retail locator on the home page as well, but it only lists the retail locations whom have supplied information to their website.

It really is worth a look. They will likely be more pricey with the synthetic media types. My sourcing can get me a LF3487 synthetic media filter for the Grand Caravan for a little less than a Mobil 1 filter. Smaller filters, like the LF3554 for my wife’s Optra5 sell for around $9.63 CDN (the same as the AC Delco equivalent).

BTW, when given your cross-reference, click on the filter to receive more information, such as dimensions, anti-drain back feature and by-pass filter pressure strength. It will also inform of superseded filters and possibly longer filter-body replacements.
