I'm not sure who makes them. But I use them and I've never had a problem, I also use them on all the trucks at work

Edit: Just remembered they are WIX Filters!!!

Its a proven statistic that Duramax's drop the panties at a faster/more consistant rate than Cummins or Powerstrokes

This may have changed recently, and someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I believe all the fuel filters are made by Racor and then rebadged as necessary....Wix, NAPA, Baldwin, etc....

Sounds like the NAPA filters are ok to go. I have one firm yes from Timmy2500. Has any one else used them?

It doesn't matter where you get your filter from for your Duramax......It might be in a Fram, purolator, napa, wix, etc box....it is still made by racor.....potato potatoe, if you will

The NAPA Filter I bought today is not shaped liked the GM filters I purchased in the past. I don't particularly care, but i doubt the GM manufacturer is the same as the NAPA supplier.
