Just wanted to post some pics of my 3-week Fuel Filter Drain (meaning it's been 3 weeks since my last drain).
A few things to be noted:
-I drain my fuel filter housing monthly
-I run Diesel Kleen EVERY fill-up. I also mix Lucas fuel Injector cleaner into it at about a 5:1 Ratio (5 DK, 1 Lucas)
-This drain was after +/-100 gallons of fuel.
-pics were taken inside a fully lighted room; Although it wasn't necessary, I allowed the water/particles 5 hours to settle
-lastly, I'm deleted, have been since 25K miles (currenlty ~35K miles)
Some observations I took that sorta surprised me:
-I've never seen my fuel this clean/clear. It usually has a stronger green/yellow tint to it. I don't know if it's because of the light, or my constant use of fuel cleaner--but I sure as hell ain't complaining. The glass used to collect was a clean, clear, dry drinking glass
-I am surprised by the amount of water/particles collected in just 3 weeks. I always use busy gas stations, and I live in Charleston, SC where there's no such thing as "winter blend" that i know of round here.
-I can only imagine folks that NEVER drain there OWS. I mean if I waited two months, te*****ally the amount should double...holy hell HPFP. It doesn't surprise me that folks who don't do routine maintenance have problems.
Hopefully this will encourage folks to routinely drain their Primary Fuel Housing. As always, thanks for loooking.
