Fuel filter water separator.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I was just wondering how often you are draining the fuel filter water separator on your diesels?  I just hit 6k km’s on my truck and drained it, it looked fine. It was quick and easy to do, I was reading of guys draining them monthly but that seems a little excessive to me.

When I had my 6.7 I drained it monthly. Like you said it was quick and easy. Small price to pay compared to the price if the time you skip it and you toast your fuel system.

It literally takes ONE tank of water contaminated fuel to destroy a fuel system if there is enough water in it. Drain it regularly, and buy fuel from a reputable and repeatable source.

Well I guess I better start draining it more frequently.  Would you not get a warning as soon as some water was in the the filter even if was a small amount and be able to stop and drain before it became an expensive situation?
