Why is it important to separate water from fuel?
It is important to remove water that enters into your fuel the system because any water present in the fuel stream will support bacterial growth. Bacterial growth can cause clogged filters and result in the formation of corrosive acids. Susceptible components then rust and corrode, leading to erosion and wear of critical fuel system components.
