dealership is purchasing fuel from from a contaminated source. Have them fix it this time for free and ask for your 863.96 check back!.

Dang that is horrible!! I've drained mine a hand full of times and knock on wood I haven't had much if any at all. When the dealer drained the tank and changed filters and stuff did they fill it up for you?

That's disgusting. My fuel NEVER looks like that. I find the busiest semi-truck station I can and use their fuel. I used to try and find the "cheapest" place until I learned a few pennies can cost thousands if the diesel tanks at the station aren't constantly being emptied.

Also the stations are require to change their fuel filters every x-amount of gallons. If not their pumps don't operate properly. A clogged/slow pump is never a good sign.

Good fuel is our trucks kryptonite. It affects everything!!!!
