I seem to remember
Back in '08 I had a problem where the housing had actually cracked causing fuel to seep/leak into the well on top of the engine. I suspect it was the below freezing temps. So, here we are two years later and I suspect I have been revisited by the evil spirit of the fuel/water separator. As I think back on it I don't remember asking about the frequency with which one should drain the thing.
Anyone have any thoughts on that subject?
EDIT...I'm leaving the above as a testament to my underwhelming level of knowledge regarding things automotive. Yes I can build you a mansion but I am lacking from a motorhead perspective and should have read guzzle's stuff in the first place.
With that said, let me ask for some insight. I didn't see anything in what I have read regarding periodic draining. I mentioned above about the filter bowl housing having cracked. I assumed that there was an "Excess" of water, which maybe I should have been smart enough to drain out as part of a regular maintenance program, that froze as a result of the extremely cold temps we were having at the time. Am I right in what I understand, short on information or totally out in left field?
