Go figure.
Sorry J&t, I'm just catching this. As an FYI, XPD contains a demulsifier which is typically not recommended for a vehicle without a dedicated water separator. The demulsification will allow water to fall out of the fuel mixture and could therefore cause more of a problem than if it were dispersed throughout the fuel if you get a slug of water I your lines.

You are not wrong to use whatever you like, and for all I know you've installed a secondary filtration setup, but this was my personal reason for not using XPD in my in modified fuel system.
