Two Questions

Ok, does the Water in Fuel light work in our OBS's? I have the display on my dash, but i have been told by more that one source (not here) that that is only a feature on the 98 and up PSD's. if thats true then why is the print for the light there?

Also ive seen a few posts about the fuel bowl heater. is this standard on these trucks or an option? i ask becuase im curious as to whether i have one..

thanks,
Matt

The water in fuel light on the OBS does work. I bought some bad fuel last summer and every time I took a right hand turn the light would come. If the light does come on if you look near the bottom of the fuel bowl there is a yellow switch that drains the water from the fuel bowl.

It is.... when there is water in it or when you change your filter.

On mine the rubber line connects to a steel line that exits somewhere near the front passenger side of the motor. I have to use a big pan to catch it because it comes down in about a 1 foot wide mess off of the motor/crossmember.
