Water Drainage

Drain fuel faithfully every month from the water bowl. Have only owned my truck for 5 months and have 9,000 miles on it. So far I haven't had not one single drop of water come from the filter. I drain it for about 30 sec. and then let it sit in my shop for a week to allow time to settle. I have done this the same way all five times with No Sign of any water. I get my diesel from the same store all the time. My question is,,,, Is this a really good place to purchase diesel "obviously" or is there somewhere else the water can be gathering up that I am not aware of and not checking. Thanks for the input guys... Was trying to wait till the 10,000 mile mark to change fuel filters but might do it a little early out of curiosity...

Kenny, your in good shape. No water means No contamination. You can change your fuel filter's but I don't think you have anything to be concerned about. As far as an additional place to check for water I can't think of anything else. I have a 32mm socket I keep in my truck in case I think I just got some bad Diesel. Changing your filter's are pretty easy. You can buy filter's online at Dieselfilters.com pretty cheap. It's a good idea to have some spares on hand.

Hey Stroker, I went to the website dieselfilters.com but when I typed in the part # it shows no match for this part #. I guess I'm using the right one. I got it out of my owners book... FD-4615. That is the only Part# I could find for them...

The prices are pretty competitive and the shipping is fast! Every once in a while there are some good deals on the Bay! There was a deal awhile back on all 4 filter's, fuel, air, oil, and pre-filter for like $95.00 not bad with free shipping. If you come across the oil filter's that have an s after the part number it's the updated filter so no worries.

Another simple and easy way to keep the water out of your fuel system is to keep you tank topped off nice and full.
