Re: water in fuel



Did this all happen at once? The problems with the 3 different trucks or was it spread out? If it was spread out I would think about finding a different place to get fuel. If it happened at the same time or close to it it's probably a fluke.

Re: water in fuel

In ck's defense: it makes it awfully tough for some people to read and rather frustrating at times. It is a previous problem.

Now the filters and such. I dont know. I know someone who has more knowledge of this topic will chime in with any info that can put forth.

Re: water in fuel

I run hess fuel all the time with no problems. It could be the stations tanks I would call your local division of weights and measures and thay will investigate.

Re: water in fuel

They will make sure that there isnt a problem with his tank and if there is you could get some money out of it.

As for filters for water... well all i know is there are some that have water fuel seporators on the filter like the one i have on my tank kit from ITP Diesel.

Re: water in fuel

What CK said.

You can get some from a lot of the vendors on here. Don't most pre-pump filters do a pretty good job of seperating the water out.

Re: water in fuel

you can take a sample of your fel and send it to Blackstone Lab for a fuel analysis. Have you friends do the same thing so you all have proof to stand on to get your trucks fixed. As for fuel/water seperators there are many options out there. Ask your favorite vendor what the reccomend.
