If you don't have a pressure guage on the V3, the only way to know your filter is done is by the green light flashing. This is the veg pump shutting off due to the pressure dropping below the switchover point. There is no loss of power at the motor because the diesel pump kicks in at the same instant the veg pump shuts off.
If you have a pressure guage, you can see the filter clogging because the veg pressure starts to drop down below 75psi, especially under acceleration.
