Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

I wouldn't exactly call the service manager a mate - but as I have stated a few times I believe it is in our best interest to have a good working relationship.
The dealership is Frizelles at South Tweed. The same group has Southport and Lismore.

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

Peter of JustForjeeps has put together a group buy package for us Aussies, see Australia Jeep Garage Group Buy . Unfortunately, there is a major delay with the fuel filters. They will not be available till end June at the earliest. My guess is that with the ramp up in production of the CRD for the American market, any item unique to the CRD will be is short supply for some time. At least this time it is not the fault of Fiat Chrysler Aust.

With the freight and all it was hard to make it viable so we put together a major service package with all but the oil. In consists of 2 fuel filters and one each of oil, air and cabin filter and an oil drain washer. With freight to Oz via Bongo, it comes to $280.11USD (about $270AUD). This is about the cost of two fuel filters alone from Aussie dealers. Note that these are genuine Mopar parts. That doesn't mean that they necessarily perform better but that that they have a higher level of quality assurance. Note one needs to choose either the 2011-2013 or 2014+ oil filter. They are different as is the price.

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

Great work Bob, and certainly worthwhile for those doing their own service and looking for the Mopar name......
Just for the basis of comparison and put the information to hand, my past purchases from Eziautoparts in Vic have been -
Wesfil air filter - WA5135 - $20.40 - currently running in vehicle
Wesfil cabin filter - WACF 0154 - $17.55 - currently running in vehicle
Wesfil fuel filter - WCF 203 - $29.25 - carried on board as spares 2 required
Postage was around $15 to the Gold Coast and all arrived within 4 days of order. Very easy to deal with too.
Last price I had for a Wesfil WCO163 oil filter was $16.70
For dealer supplied oil filter at service I paid $58.35
For genuine fuel filters I paid $113.35 each from the dealer (once I kicked up a stink about this price and the $115 labour I paid, I now have an agreement that I will be invoiced trade pricing on future parts).
There are definitely savings to be made......
John

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

For all we know the Wesfil and Mopar filters come out of the same factory but the thing is, we just don't know.

Peter of JustForJeeps tells me he has ordered 6 fuel filters from Mopar to keep tabs on their delivery. He will let us know when they arrive.

The big price difference between the 2011-2013 and 2014+ oil filters is because the 2014+ CRDs will be using the same oil filters as the Jeep petrol engines.

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

Hmmm. I wonder if the oil filter adapters can be retrofitted to the CRD MY13.

Mopar are a bit confused. Peter has just received six fuel filters. So get your orders in while stocks last! No, I assume the supply is normal now. I've ordered mine. The site again is Australia Jeep Garage Group Buy .

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

Just received the JustForJeeps Australia Jeep Garage Group Buy major maintenance package 3 weeks and 2 days after placing the order. All products come in Mopar packaging but I can determine the manufacturers as follows:

Oil Filter: UFI (Universal Filter Italiana) branded - Italian company - Made in China - Benvenuto in UFI FILTERS - Brown paper type in a high quality plastic fitting with a large and a small O-ring.
Fuel Filter/Water Separator (2): UFI branded - Italian company - made in China - Dense white fleece type in a high quality plastic fitting with a water sump underneath.
Engine Air Filter: Hengst branded - German company - Don't know where made - Identical to OEM filter.
Cabin Air Filter: micronAir branded - German company - Made in USA - White paper type.
Sump Plug Washer: Flat copper washer, ~17.5mm ID, ~21mm OD and ~1mm thick.


I guess it’s not surprising that the oil filter and the fuel filter/water separators are Italian since the engine is Italian.

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

When I typed "Oil" I forgot to remove "Fuel".

I added it to this Fuel Filter thread due to the JustForJeeps kit that was set up that includes an Oil Filter.

Would you mind sharing the shipping cost for this package?
