So on my Namiba trip I used the filter twice. First time fuel was good and clean and fresh. Second time the whole garage in Kuruman looked crappy so I used it again. Sure enough, about half a cup of water and a teaspoon of rust and grit in the filter after filling tank and a Jerry Can (72lt)......

         .....Now that's probably enough to stuff the fuel filter completely and have you walking for help!! :eek:

I'll test it and let you know. Give me a day or two.
