first gel up this year.

Filled my truck up Wednesday and added double the antigel knowing it was going to be cold today.

5 minutes from home on the way to work this am the change fuel filter light came on. "Service minder was at 30 percent Wednesday" and immediately after the check engine light came on with the message "reduced engine power"

50 mph to work .

Pulled into shop and changed filter
Reset engine light
Installed a bottle of 911

All Is good!

By the way filter change on the lmm was
> 10 minutes with my "access hole" cover I built off of the design of one pictured below.

What did you use for material to make your access cover? I'm too short to work from the top and can't seem to get the filter thru anyway. I always have to remove fender skirt. I like your access door better. Saw a high dollar premade setup but would rather try it myself. yours looks like a good way to go. Thanks, Bob

Bob I went to the local trucking parts place and bought a plastic mudflap for a big rigger then cut out a piece bigger than my hole.
I used a heat gun to warm plastic and form it to inner fender skirt.
Then drills some holes and used 1/4 "
U nuts to hold it in place.
I also used foam around the edges to seal it.
I'll post up a pic.

Turbs,
We have the same truck.

I would also like to know what you did and how you made that cover.
Seems like a "truck mod" is in my future.

Ok the hole I cut
Is 7" wide
The panel I made was 9" wide x 10" long.

I cut my hole Just about centered in the fender liner and I could have moved the center towards the rear more but that left me with very little flat surface to be able to seal with the filler panel.
