Water Separator?

I was thinking about water separators tonight because of a thread. It crossed my mind that perhaps a good water separator would increase MPG because of less crap in the fuel when its burned?

Is that a thing or just a figment of my imagination?

Yep, imagination. It will have no noticeable effect on economy. But, your injectors will love you.

Yep.

The stock fuel filter on the 7.3 is a pretty good water stripper so adding another one isn't going to net you a ton anyways but it will let you run longer intervals.
