Draining Water



Filtration and separation of water from the fuel is important for trouble-free operation and long life of the fuel system. Regular maintenance, including draining moisture from the fuel/water separator filter is essential to keep water out of the fuel pump. To remove the collected water, unscrew the drain at the bottom of the Water-In-Filter (WIF) assembly located at the bottom of the filter separator.
