DIESELSITE 2011-2013 Ford 6.7L Fuel Filter / Water Separator

http://www.dieselsite.com/dieselsite...separator.aspx

Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this in-line fuel filter system? It looks like it would be added protection. But, I'm wondering if it would cause fuel pump issues during the cold winters here in Alaska. With the complaints that I've read about bad fuel and/or water in the fuel, I was thinking this might be a good investment.

Thanks for any thoughts and knowledge sharing. Sorry for any ignorance, but, I'm fairly new to diesels and the 6.7 (my first)

You can buy a FASS pump with water separator and fuel filter for that much and it deletes factory frame rail filter with railing fuel pressure.

I have this setup and I'm very happy with it. Good piece of mind, and easily returned to stock.

Oh, and dieselsite's customer service is top notch.

It's not a glorified filter, it's sold exactly as it is, a 2 micron filter/water separator that can easily be removed if the truck needs to go in.

I have had mine on for 15,000 miles it's nice to be able to see if there is anything in the filter (water / dirt)and not make a mess having to drain the factory one to see it its dirty. ") bob is a great guy to work with. I had got stuff from him when working on my old 7.3 just service prevention stuff on the new 6.7 .

/wave !

I send people your way all the time when they call needing ideas for protection if they plan on taking their truck for off-road use. I know the bowls are rated for daily road use and abuse but every now and again I get that one guy who gonna get his truck super stuck in the mud... and your setup and very well done and a good design!
