Description

On the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel truck, removal of the fuel filter is not so easy. It is hidden underneath the bed of the truck, about mid-way back and just to the left-of-center.

When opened, the tiny yellow drain valve doesn't drain much fuel. You'll typically only get about two ounces of fuel to drain which is not enough to prevent a fuel bath when the fuel filter canister is removed.

You can use a strap wrench to remove the fuel filter bowl, but expect the aforementioned fuel bath. With this billet aluminum fuel removal tool we've made the whole process easier and far less messy.

This tool includes:

  • Billet aluminum wrench with a 3/4" (19mm) boss
  • Drain Plug
The wrench fits snugly on the bottom of the fuel filter canister and grabs the four tabs on the outside of it making removal easier. The drain valve is installed after the first filter removal and drains all of the fuel so you won't have fuel running down your arm when you take the canister down.

If you plan to do your own fuel filter changes, this is a "must have" tool in your toolbox.

Yes. It includes the drain plug.

EcoDiesel Fuel Filter Removal Tool

I read about this on a Ram EcoD forum and watched their youtube video. OMG if you are changing your own fuel filter on a Ram 1500 Diesel, this thing is amazing! I highly recommend the kit and brass drain plug. The factory screw doesn't release but about 2 of the 14 oz that will drain from the filter housing. Fantastic product from Geno's Garage!!!

ECODIESEL FUEL FILTER removal tool AND DRAIN PLUG
May 27, 2018  |  By Mike
Filter removal tool worked as advertised... a very robust design (maybe even over engineered)... I do have one complaint on the brass replacement plug... the head thickness will make it susceptible to falling... particularly as it is made of brass. Overall, very satisfied. 4 rather than 5 stars due to thin profile of the head on the brass replacement plug.

Great tool made short work of filter change. Installed new drain plug included with tool but have not tried to drain filter yet. Should cure fuel bath issue.

Great product, makes changing the diesel fuel filter much easier.


Great, useful product

This filter wrench tool is ideal for swapping out a fuel filter. Using it - with its hex end - is much like the stock OIL filter housing on the top of the engine. (Which spins off as it's got an incorporated hex end.) The tool is well-made, heavy duty, and engages the ribs on the fuel filter housing perfectly. The ability to use a ratchet and socket with an extension versus a strap-wrench makes this task much easier. Great tool; glad I found it!


Great product for the price

Great product, exactly what I ordered.


Great Tool, Great Drain Valve
Aug 28, 2017  |  By Mark
As advertised! Tool worked great for engaging and loosening the fuel filter housing. I used a Ziploc bag to catch the fuel and avoid the initial bath, and replaced the cheap plastic valve with the nice brass version from Geno's. Next replacement will go far better! Great products!


Fuel filter removal socket and fuel bolt review
Aug 21, 2017  |  By Angel
Best tool I've purchased in a long time. The removal of the fuel filter cover was very easy and this socket makes it easy to turn in limited space. Highly recommend The replacement fuel cap screw was easy to install and next fuel filter change will be non messy. Highly recommend No leaks with replacent bolt.

The fuel filter and fuel filter wrench I received along with instructions worked like a charm. I will definitely be ordering more in the future. Thanks for making this so easy. Dealership charges much more for something you can do yourself.

This tool is a must have. I replaced the drain plug with the brass one that came with the tool. I only wish that a couple extra O rings would have come with drain plug

The stock fuel filter drain simply does not work well, and it makes a mess. There's not a lot of room for a strap wrench around the filter housing. Having an easy tool on a wratchet extension and a functional drain plug makes this routine maintenance a lot less likely to dump half a liter of diesel on (you, your shop, driveway, etc). The tool is solid, durable, looks great, and works great.

This kit would be even better with a drain cock option that is seen on most fleet transportation trucks like semi trucks

It's awesome. I got a fuel bath the first time just like in the video. I teach fuel system in the Army. Thanks Geno for the innovation. This tool works great

We had a mechanic use the tool to change my filter. He liked it so much we agreed to get him one instead of paying him for the filter change. That's why I have ordered two!

The fuel filter housing removal tool is heavy duty and works well. The replacement brass plug drains the filter housing of both fuel and separated water.


Another great product for the ecodiesel
Feb 13, 2017  |  By Bradley
I love to do my own maintenance - so started looking at the fuel filter you tube videos. Several contained info about the billet aluminum tool and drain plug replacement from Geno's. The price of the tool made me hesitate. Just do it. It is the right tool for the job! The drain replacement part is also worth every penny. I think all will agree once they have replaced the fuel filter that the tool and part made by Geno's is perfect. I will pass the tool along in my will - I bet it will make Antiques Roadshow 2117!

Ordered this, prompt delivery. Using a 1-Gal ziplock bag to cover the filter and tool, it made quick play of a filter replacement. Highly recommend this tool! Excellent design.

This worked great. Changing the filter every 30k is recommended but since i have this tool and it runs smoother with a fresh filter i will be changing mine every 15k miles.


Outstanding tool!

EXTRA INFO
Oct 29, 2016  |  By KEITH BUSBY
EXCELLANT PRODUCT,IT CAME WITH FUEL FILTER DRAIN PLUG.I DID NOT KNOW THE TOOL CAME WITH DRAIN PLUG . I BOUGHT TWO DRAIN PLUGS ,ONE FOR A FRIEND AND ONE FOR ME. NOW I HAVE AN EXTRA WHICH I WILL NEVER USE.
Owner Response:Feel free to return the not needed drain plug for a refund. I did verify that our website shows that the removal tool comes with a plug. Sometimes customers or shops order more plugs to have on hand.

Dealer charges 200.00 for fuel filter change. I did it myself for 35.00 in about 15 minutes. This tool made that possible. It is well made and easy to use.

I am always very happy to see someone find a prominent flaw in the manufacturers design and correct it with high quality simple to use and priced appropriately. Thank you for taking the time to make something so useful for my ECO Diesel. My wife has the ECO Grand Cherokee. Does the plug fit it as well, It looks to have the same yellow plastic thingie. Thanks Darren
Owner Response:Darren, We did test fit the plug in a Grand Cherokee Eco Diesel, unfortunately it leaked and needed to be removed. They do look similar, but are different.

Hello, I would like to thank you for designing your filter tool. I change my filter today even after purchasing the tool I saved over 50.00 compared to what the dealer wanted to do it. Next order I'll order a dozen filters that should last me for a while.
