A work truck that I had but in 05 had a valve where the drain plug was which made it real easy to drain any water off. Has anyone seen this, did the mechanic add it to make maintenance easier? I was up in the UP this summer and had a bout with some water in the fuel and was having to pull over every 100 miles or so and drain it through the majority of 2 tanks.
I swore I would ask when I got back but forget till I read this post.
