Finally changed the fuel filters

so after a few questions answered by marc, i went down and had my fuel filters changed. man were they filthy. Both were almost black. i couldnt believe how much better it runs and drives now. smoother acceleration, faster pickup. just like new!!!!! i had no clue that these filters affected the performance so much. thanks marc.

nothin like the smell of good ol diesel. i looked at the old filters and man, i almost couldnt keep my nose out of the box!!! LOL, i love the smell of fuel. kinda reminds me of JP-8 jet fuel, it smells real good burnt and unburnt. the fliters were nasty, the small one was starting to twist, the pleats werent straight up and down anymore, not sure why that was going on but they definately needed swapped out.

Yeah - especially getting drenched at 6:30 in the morning, from head to toe, working offshore, and 12 hours away from being able to get to a shower! Very memorable!

Wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis, though.
