6.0L water in fuel

I filled up yesterday & w/in 40 miles it said Water in Fuel. It went off after a few miles, then back on again. Truck runs fine but should I do something?

Re: 6.0L water in fuel

Have you drained the fuel/water separater to see if there's any water in it?

Re: 6.0L water in fuel

It should be under the hood, a silver looking round container that is generally replaced automatically if you get the oil changed at a dealer, or another premium source. Going cheap with buying no name diesel is another no no. Get the good diesel at a high volume station and you'll only have to replace the fuel/water separator every 2nd or 3rd oil change - that's what I do on my Sprinter and run only Sunoco Gold Diesel here in Ontario. It's more expensive but it reduces maintenance costs and helps increase mileage.
