Draining the water?

How are you guys draining the water from the filter? Is it just a simple turn of the yellow knob till it drains out? If so for how long do you drain it? Thanks

Yes

I open with suitable container underneath and let run for 20 seconds and look for water seperating from the Diesel

So far so good

Hey just wondering what the diesel u guys r catching from the seperator looks like? Drained mine yesterday in a water bottle and didn't see any water separated from it today but the fuel itself has a cloudy look to it. Kind of looks like lemonade with a very slight green tint to it. Does this sound normal or do u think this fuel may b questionable. Already screwed up my fuel system once and can't afford to do it again so I am paranoid.

I drained mine twice at and before 8000 miles. I have not seen a single pellet of water in it. My 6.4 used to have a ton.
It really makes me wonder how well it works.

That is a very interesting assement. Same fuel suppliers?

I drain mine into a clean baby food jar, have never seen a speck of water. My 7.3 would get the WIF light once or twice a year. I also wonder how well this works or is it because of the plastic tanks don't condensate like the old one did? Or is the fuel pickup higher in the tank?

Drained it again today after filling up last two times at different station. Was not cloudy at all and no water either. Last time when I drained it it was cloudy looking but I also drained it in morning when it was colder that time. Would the temp make it do that?

Depends on how cold it was. Could be cloudy if the fuel is starting to gel.
