I find that I can do only like 550km on my 3.0 D4D before the low fuel light goes on. I am a farmer and I often drive these sort of kilometers before I pass a fuel pump. I understand that the injectors of these commonrail engines nead best quality diesel. So I do not want to fill up on the farm. A long range tank would be too expensive. I know that Racor also supply funnels that take out water and dirt. Fitting a filter system to the farm tank is also an option. Some advice would be appreciated.

Hi Louis, welkom op die forum.

Daai Parker Racor filter funnels is baie oulik, sal dalk vir my 1 aankoop in die toekoms 'n baie sinvolle item om te besit.

Ek sal ook 'n filter aan jou tenk op die plaas aanbeveel, water trap en particle filter. Jou trekkers en vragmotors kan net daarby baat.
