Anyone consider or has put one of these systems on an ecodiesel? I first heard about it on the Diesel Brothers show. However I'm only really finding info for boat people.

Would this be a good add for the ecodiesel to ensure no real contaminates, water, gets to the injectors, and also it takes care of 100% of the air bubbles associated with conventional diesel fuel filter.

Thanks for any knowledge to can provide to a new diesel owner.

It doesn't seem like something that would be necessary unless you are getting old diesel from some place that's sketchy, IMO

More diesel fuel filtration is pretty much always a good thing. Necessary? Worth it? Subjective.

IMO, it's worth it. Having said that it is down on my list of priorities. Since they have kept increasing the pressure in these common rail systems, they have found the need for better filtration. And it seems most manufacturers have done a decent job of providing such.

I'm personally a little more concerned with polishing the oil through bypass filtration. Although again, probably not necessary.

Might be worth a look. An extremely minuscule amount of water can wreck the entire fuel system. Hopefully factory filtration has gotten better. Ford was the worst with the 6.7L. Lots of $12,000 fuel system repairs that Ford refused to warranty.

That would explain why the featured it on Diesel Brothers (Motor Trend Channel, I think)

They put it in a 6.7L Ford F450. They mentioned that it enhanced fuel economy as well.

FASS, Airdog, Aeromotive. Go hit up some of the established diesel pickup forums. I've had an Airdog 150 on my 2005 Dodge Ram 5.9L diesel since probably 2007-2008.

So, if one is traveling to very remote US with sketch fuel stations this might be worth the peace of mind? Or, when traveling Baja where you might question the fuel quality (of course in Baja, you might be having to run LSD fuel from time to time anyways).
