BLACK Fuel Filter

I just thought if post this.


I bought this truck a couple weeks ago for next to nothing, and I'm in the process of bringing it back to life.

I pulled the fuel filter today, and holy crap. It was freaking BLACK. I don't know if it's injector o-rings yet or just really old.

Here ya go:

they maybe ran farm diesel before. and the red dye blacked it out... or its really old lol.... but i see the fuel in filter bowl is blue diesel isnt blue.... maybe he added trans fluid to fuel or some other sort of additive that discolored it.

When I first changed the filter in my truck it was also as black as that. The PO had not used the truck in about 5 years. The black in mine was from what I assume was algae. It has not been black since.

If it is algae, you can get biocide treatments to run in it. Cheers!

All the road diesel where I live has that blueish look to it or a neon green it's not clear. Usually when they are that black it has a algae problem if your not getting oil in fuel

Injector O-rings dont bother me.. Ive gotten pretty good at pulling injectors.

Glowplugs need to be replaced in this thing anyways.

Any other biocides that I could get a O'reillys, Autozone, ect?
