I changed mine when first bought my truck used 5000km ago but I was thinking of giving truck oil change every 5000km with shell rotella 15w40 and every 2nd oil change change fuel filter. does this sound right?

I change it about every 10k or so. When I first got the truck I had to change it every 5k. The tank had a bunch of junk in it and was making the filter pretty nasty. The first time I changed it it looked like there was algae growing on it. Didn't have a clue back then that bacteria can grow in diesel if it stands too long.

fuel filters don't cost that much so I change mine every time I change the oil at 7500 miles. The trucking company I used to work for did it that way and it seem to work with no problem that was at 15000 miles
