water seperator

Am i supposed to be draining my water seperator regularly on my 08 6.4? Because on my old school 93 7.3 i only do it when water in fuel light comes on.

I would drain it at minimum once a month if not even a little more. The fuel system is way to delicate and the draining process is very easy.

I drain mine every month, maybe 2, but there's hardly ever anything in it. Better safe than sorry though.
