RE: Diesel Fuel

Diesel fuel does suffer from Ashpalting , it clumps intp bigger pieces as it tries to return to tar.

Most filters have zero problems with removing these big clumps and it is easy to notice when you remove the filter it has 1/2 inch of black sandy granuals on it.

IF the tank was properly designed as a marine fuel tank (not just a cheapo box with fuel in it) your normal water removal will preclude the growth of " bugs" (slang) that do stop up the filter system.
