Default How good is the stock filter system for our fuel?

I have some free fuel that was supposed to be from a clean source and was being used regularly. How ever when i pumped a Jerry can full i noticed a very small amount of debris in it. I have it stored in a 50 gal barrel and was wondering if our stock fuel filter system is good enough to not worry about it. It definately should not be dirty fuel and was used in big rigs and loaders.

the worst that would happen is a clogged filter strain it thru several layers of pantyhose or a paint filter and should go thru no problems

DO NOT DO IT

50 gal fuel = $122.50

Injectors going out and having your truck in the shop for six weeks while you call the crysler complaint line unil they fianlly warranty your pickup = I don't want to think about it.

Three rules to fuel:

1: Always get good fuel from a reputable supplier.

2: Change filter every 5K.

3: Run Marvel Mystery Oil and Power Service in at least every other tank if not every tank.

I will now get off of my soapbox.

I couldn't find anything at Dodge or Cummins, that talked about using Marvel Mystery Oil or Power Service products at all!?

Using MMO and PS is done to keep the fuel system lubricated .

If you use the fuel ,go and get a funnel that has a strainer in it ,this will prevent the junk from getting into the tank. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

You should be just fine using it! As long as it isn't old fuel (After a year diesel starts going downhill. Your truck won't run very good if it's older and as it get's even older your truck will finally just not run!).

Do strain it well before you put it in! Things big enough to see easily will help plug the strainer in the tank (On the pick-up tube or in tank lift pump). The factory filter will catch most everything else down to about 12 or 15 microns. Having a better filter would be a good idea (Cat makes a good synthetic media that filters down to 2 microns). Since the factory doesn't put one on; maybe it isn't necessary....?

Thanks for the replys. The free fuel seems to work my way every now and then which is a great deal i just wont run it exclusively. I will keep it mixed with new fuel and keep using my racor fuel conditioner and hopefully all wil be good. I have a hand fuel pump and filter system that is not quite setup yet untill then i will have to just skim the top and hope not to put to much crap in the tank.it looks pretty clean i think most of the crap has settled at the bottom of the barrel.
