So, educate me. Don't you need the water in filter sensor?

Most people will not need it. We have 6 Duramaxs here all of which have no WIF sensor and have not had a single issue in all the years we have owned them. along with hundreds if not thousands of others who have done the same.

the only time i can see water in your fuel being an issue is if you are buying fuel from a small time fuel stop which might not go through their stock of fuel very often, or has sketchy fuel quality to start with.

I always get fuel from the big places who are going through thousands of gallons a day.

EVERY diesel should have a water trap/drain somewhere.With all the diesels I've owned in the last 38 years being in the excavating biz has had them and for good reason. Myy DIC actually did alert me twice that water was present and upon checking, there was indeed water. I'd like to switch over also to Cat filtering but can't get past what I know is fact.

Where were you getting fuel at tuney? Not trying to defend anything one way or the other.. just trying to get a basis put together of instances where people have gotten water in their fuel. every time ive heard of it happening.. its been tiny fuel pumps, or guys running farm fuel from their own tanks, but if its happening elsewhere id be curious to know

Thanks for the responses. I don't know enough to debate the issue, but if water in fuel isn't an issue, why do vendors sell high dollar water separator systems?

It's a possibility that it can happen. I check my AirDog water separator every oil change and only fuel has come out. So I'm not too concerned about it. But then again like I said I gets fuel from the big guys.

I also ONLY get all my diesel for both on and off road iron from large volume stations.Diesel fuel by it's nature attracts water,it enters from suppliers tanks, overnight condensation,fueling while it's raining/snowing, dropping your cap in a puddle,etc.Show me 1 class 8 truck/tractor that did'nt have a water separator installed from the factory.

Perfect. Thank you. The more we pool data together the more we as a community we can grow and solve problems. But. Donaldson does have a filter that crosses over to the cats which does have a water seperator. I've been trying to find a good source of them

Yup,I have one on my C7500 with a Cat 3126 placed underneath,bracketed to the frame.It's the larger micron catch can with combined bottom clear bowl water separator.Every Spring when I change out,there's always a teaspoon of dirty water in there along with some crud.Mine isn't but Donaldson also makes that identical unit with a heater.
