Re: Water Separator Indicator Light/Draining Questions
With over eight years experience with my current PSD, I've never had any water drain out when I drained the fuel filter/water seperator. So a few years ago I stopped draining my fuel filter except when I change the filter.
Yesterday I drained mine, and changed the filter, for the first time in about a year. It didn't need draining because not a drop of water came out - just a pint or so of pure, clean, diesel. But the filter was way overdue and needed changing really bad. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif[/img]
So if you always buy your diesel at busy truckstops, and fill to the cap when you fill up, and live in an arid climate, you probably won't collect much water in the water seperator.

My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
