Default Best stock fuel filter replacement

I'm new to this form. Just bought an 06 duramax hd while I was one R&R. I know my fuel filter needs changed and I'm trying to get some advice on the best and cheapest stock replacement filter just until I can get home and upgrade the fuel filter as my wife will be driving it in the winter. Thanks in advance I heard pros and cons on the wix ex

I have run WIX, AC/delco, and Fleetguard, all seem to be fine so far, mind you the WIX really is the easiest to install because of the new narrower design
and get the Delco, it is made by racor and it filters down to 4microns

I've done a little looking around and the wix seems pretty good and I use them in my wifes car and the have yet to fail me I'm kinda new to the duramax it's been a long awaited day. You would happen to know the micron levels on the wix vs stock

Afe makes a lower Micron unit that's a great choice for common rail trucks. Otherwise I prefer to run oe equipment or pureone. Wix gave me a scare a few years back and I would assume it was a limited incident related to only one oil filter. The incident did put a sour taste in my mouth.

We sell the Racor (factory filter) which if i am not mistaken also makes the AFE and we sell the Wix and Wix extra life. We sell the 4 micron Racor 3-1 over anything else. We have package deals that are not matched by anybody yet.

I have been running the Racor PFF 50216 for the last year and have had zero issues with it.

I recently replaced mine with a Luber-Finer, since that's all the auto parts store had, and so far haven't had any issues.
