manual states on the 2017 that we would get a message when water is detected in the filter, I do not see in maual stating to check this on a monthly basis.
2011-2016 had a diesel supplement guide, however 2017 does not.

One thing with optilube summer blend is it doesn’t have the demulsifier in it where the xdp does. It seems like one of the biggest issues with the 6.7 is water. So once I use up all my summer and winter blen I’m gonna get some of the xdp and just run that all the time. I had the summer blend left over from the 7.3 which didn’t seem to care about water.

Does anyone know if the fixed the water in fuel sensor with the 17? I know with the older 6.7 by the time the light on the dash came on it was too late and the fuel system was toast. My friend has an 11 and never got a water in fuel light and destroyed the whole fuel system. 10K to replace everything

Manual states:
You should drain water from the
module assembly whenever the
warning light illuminates or a
message appears in the information
display advising you to drain the water
separator. This occurs when approximately
6.76 fl oz (200 ml) of water accumulates
in the module. If you allow the water level
to exceed this level, the water may pass
through to the engine and may cause fuel
injection equipment damage
You are right....it doesn't say to do it monthly but if you wait for the warning light to illuminate or the information display to pop a message, there's a chance that you are too late and risk an impact to your CP4 high pressure pump. So make sure you are doing it often enough to avoid the light coming on (or info center message). Maybe every other tank.

If you look towards the back of the manual (my online manual it's page 573) the scheduled maintenance chart does say that at every oil change. Fuel and water separator. Drain if necessary (or if indicated by the information display).

Where do you dump the one liter you drain?

I dump mine into my diesel tractors. Or I'll use it for a fire pit starter. If you change your own oil, you can also mix it in with that and dispose of both at the same time (wherever you take your used oil in for recycling).

I too am a first time diesel owner. Outside of driving military vehicles and performing pmcs on them, I had no clue what owning a diesel truck entailed. 2018 6.7L F350 btw.
