Since the new fuel filter that has the integral water sensor is now the norm, and it's about quadrupled in price over the earlier one, who seems to have the cheapest price on them for the Mann or Hengst?

Anyone know yet?

Thanks treadmill, I buy from them also and knew their price is $123.00. Kinda looking for an even cheaper option, good brand though.
Got a friend who's possibly going to go to work for a new Mercedes Sprinter dealer in Minnesota. Maybe she can get an even better price if she gets the job???

I'd be interested in who this dealer is. Currently there are no sprinter dealers in MN (MB brand), there were several when dodge sold them, but no Mercedes picked them up. I'm sure glad that I can service them myself for the most part.

FYI, I State. Freightliner in suburban MSP sells and services Sprinters. They have done a good job for me in the past.

Have you checked a Mercedes Dealer nearby? I got my fuel filter at Mercedes of Plano, Texas for $101.25.

Don't know the name but it's in Rochester on the south end. Just now starting to hire folks, not open yet.
When I find out the name I'll try to post it here

Joe is yours the new fuel filter with the integrated water sensor? Changed to that in mid-2012, which quadrupled the prices online at least

There are four possibilities for US 2013 Sprinters equipped with a V6, 3.0L diesel engine.

See attached

Do you know which one is installed on your Sprinter?

Good Lord, didn't know there was 4. Won't have our new one for another 3 weeks, so don't know

2013 Sprinters in the US and Canada are a little more complicated than 2007-2012.

The parts catalog, epc.startekinfo.com also contains notes which tell the technician to match it to the vehicle.

I think the notes are the result of, um, "cavalier" techs that perhaps failed to perform due diligence in the field.
