I believe that a 2014 has two fuel lines attached to the filter and the 2017 has three, with the added fuel line being the tiny fragile one.

I certainly don't have any interest in ordering and stocking spare parts that I will likely never use. I might change the primary filter once in the time I own a truck but it's unlikely I'll ever change the under hood filter.

When you buy the kit, it comes with both filters (You may be able to buy them individually, but I did not see that as an option when I ordered mine), so I don't know why you would not replace them together.

That said, I have the replacement filter in front of me, and it certainly appears that all three lines are sturdy. Yes, one is half the diameter as the others, but the plastic is nearly the same thickness.

Did you actual watch the video?

It is not the fitting in the filter that is the issue, it is with the quick disconnect fitting on the return hose that attaches to the filter.

I will have to check, you might be right. I need to do my filters again in a couple weeks.

When I bought mine they came in kits as well but I don't change fuel filters unless i feel there is some reason to. So on one truck I changed the primary when I had a problem with the fuel gelling. Changing the primary was enough to get me going again. The other truck had its primary filter changed after putting DEF into the fuel tank. I disconnected the fuel line at the under hood filter and pumped all the fuel out of the truck through the low pressure side. After emptying the tank I changed the primary filter just to be sure I had gotten all the DEF out of the system. So far I haven't come across any need to change the fuel filter on my latest truck..... it only has about 25000 miles on it.

That is surprising you have not had an issue. I have had mine go into limp mode with a plugged fuel filter. I change it when the computer says to and use a GM filter that I have them install, easy enough to do, especially with the filter location on the L5P, but I want it documented. May be wasting some money on an install that I wouldn't have to, but it might pay me back some day.

We order 65000 liters of fuel at a time and let it settle in the tank for a day after delivery before pumping it. We seldom see a fuel filter require changing on any of our equipment.

Still amazes me you get away with no filter changes.
