Guess what I am going to do when I pick the truck up afterwards? Yep, drain the separator. I will never buy another diesel again without that being part of the sale. I hope everyone else who buys one will do the same.

I'll let you all know how this goes. Thank you everyone.

Coming home tomorrow

Well, the truck is all done being fixed up. I will pick it up tomorrow. It turns out that when I took it into the dealer, they decided based on a new fuel sample, the siphoning and draining that I did that they should only do a tank removal / clean, filter replacement and fuel line flush. Total cost would be $1075. I agreed with the understanding that the filters be returned to me and that their recommendations be written on the repair order. I would like to open the filters up and let them dry out to see if crystals form. I have a suspicion that the lot attendant that filled up the truck during the sale may have made a mistake when filling the truck with DEF.

Anyway, insurance has part of the bill and I pay my $500 deductible. I can't wait to get it back. The F150 loaner isn't bad but a Super Duty just can't be beat. Thanks to everyone for your input. You helped me more than you know. That is what this board is all about.

Same as my 7.3ís.

BTW, write down your key code.

Also, as earlier suggested, the key tumbler operates much smoother with some spray lube.

Costco has diesel in their Anchorage AK store and I reckon they'll have it when they open their doors in Fairbanks later this year.

Interesting thread. As an owner of a 7.3L Powerstroke, I've never had to deal with WIF issues. Our older trucks are most likely less sensitive in this regard than the newer trucks, but I've also probably been fortunate with respect to where I've bought my fuel.

Or..... your sensor could be bad. Lol
Maybe the area you are is less humid/has less large temp swings.

Costco runs a VERY tight ship when it comes to fuel stations where I'm at. A company like this would not be intentionally watering down fuel or neglecting maintenance requirements.

The diesel I buy at Costco has always been high standard. I have filled up at several Costcos when the truck was down to only a gallon or two of fuel. When I drain some fuel to check for water there is none. As well, the color and clarity is better than any other fuel I have bought except for, interestingly, the fuel from HEB groceries in Texas.

Right. But I've gotten fuel from some questionable places, no water. Lol
