Fuel light comes on when going 60 mph with a brand new filter. Fuel that came out of the 1 day old filter is looking pretty bad.

Yeah, the fuel is pretty bad. See the mason jar of bad fuel. i Have a defuel pump from my old race car days, several fuel cans and A deep cycle marine battery.Just to give you a answer, get that fuel out of the tanks.
Get a few 5 gallon fuel cans and siphon it out, then put some fresh fuel into it.
You could even get a electric fuel pump and put it on the line from the tank to suck that stuff out.
Ok, thanks. Now I need to find a repair shop that will drop the tanks and clean them.It's obvious you need to remove the tanks and have them cleaned. We ran into that on rare occasion and pulled the tank, took it over to the steam rack and stuck the steam cleaner nozzle in the tank inlet and let it run for an hour or two.
Right, Diesel Clean is not an algaecide if I remember right. As bad as your fuel sample looked, you'd be wise to pull and steam the tanks AND then use an algaecide also. The fleet trucking magazine we got at work talked about algae in diesel now and then but our shop or I never experienced it until one day on a trip I got a slug of it at a truck stop after fueling up. My case wasn't near as bad as yours, 2 or 3 filter changes and an algaecide and I never had another problem.You'll be replacing the injector pump next. That sh*t is going to score everything in that pump that there is to score. Never mess with dirty fuel. All it is good for now is lighting a brush pile. Clean those tanks out before you run it very long, because the filter (no matter how good it is) can't stop all of the trash coming to it.
