Remove water from Diesel
Hey Fellas, Back in March, I got a front tank of diesel which I am guessing had water in it. Truck ran real crappy, I switched fuel tanks and the crappiness worked it's way out. Refueled at another station and all is good.
Now what to do with those 20 or so gallons of contaminated fuel? I have let it sit since March but no noticeable water has separated. So I am guessing the water is just miscible into the fuel. How do I break it out? Has anyone done this before? Can I heat up the fuel to 212* to drive off the water? Maybe a diesel separator like what is on aux fuel tank's? Any other idea's?
