Have any of ya'll changed the fuel filter on the diesel? Does anyone have pictures or drawings? Have anybody bought a fuel filter?
It will state the Bio Diesel mix ratio on the pump where you can clearly know if it is bio diesel! Otherwise it should not be any mix at all.I bought a fuel filter recently, because I'm contemplating to have it installed at 20K insteaad of 30K just in case I've pumped high bio-diesel. I have alittle over 15,000 miles on my PM. Manual states "use of biofuels require intervals shorter than the outlined 30,000 miles and must not exceed the suggested schedule. When operating on biofuels greater than 5% and less than 20%, fuel filter replacement intervals must not exceed 20,000 miles".
Everytime I pump diesel, I look at the pump station for bio numbers, zippo, no numbers, no mention of bio, nothing! So how can I be sure I'm pumping 5 percent or less bio?
The diesel fuel filter (/water separator) changed over years in Fiat Ducato.I looked at my filter housing yesterday and it is nothing like the pictures shown on sites for the Ducato in Europe. Mine is metal with a bunch of connections both electrical and hoses. I think I'll let the dealer service department change it the first time and ask the tech how it's done.
