My TDI I used to own was rock solid, and I've never heard of a contamination issue from dirt or water from my years at TDIclub, just the ole friend/wife/dealership gas in the tank ordeal.

I've seen nozzle vids before, however not the actual spraying to see the patterns. Very cool!
Yea can you imagine if water is getting by the Ford fuel/water seperators/filters that it is most certainly getting by our filter.

I am really going to consider using Diesel Kleen 911 every few tanks.

I too am stepping up my vigilance and use of the best fuel I can find. But you cannot help but notice that the primary fuel filter on that Ford had not been maintained. The best filters in the world have to be maintained. Do you suppose we should be changing our fuel filters more often than recommended? Is that a simple DIY?
