Goldenrod Replacement Water Block Fuel Filter Element - Fits Item# 17041
good for the job, but don't waste it
I put one of these on my diesel tank and it turned out I had 15 gallons of water in the tank, so it just immediately clogged, which is a wasteful way, to my thinking, of finding out you have a bunch of water in there. It clogged right up.
Now I emptied it and put on a new filter and its fine.
The point is, don't think it is the filter if it clogs. It could be that you have too much water and it just puffs the filter up.

An excellent filter. Be careful when screwing it on. It can become cross threaded easily. Other than that it does a great job.

Water Block Filter
This water block filter works just great. I have used it to filter used vegetable oil and would recommend it to anyone who is processing used vegetable oil. We all know how damaging water can be to a diesel engine. I have processed used oil to run in my truck. Clean oil is essential for my diesel to run correctly and this product does the job. My only concern is that it can't be cleaned and reused. If the oil you are processing has much water you will find the filter gets plugged very quickly.

Keeps water out of my biodiesel. Easy to switch filters, fast and fit well. Can be hard to tell visually when blocked, only when fuel does not flow do you know that it is time to change.

No Bad fuel
I would recommend this filter to anyone that wants to be assured that no bad fuel will be transfered to and damage an expensive diesel engine. When it is clogged or has water it won't let any more fluid pass through.
I keep an extra on hand at all times.

I use this product as the sole water removing method (other than gravity) on my waste vegetable oil fuel processing station. Of course I do what I can to stay away from oil with obvious water contamination, all oil will contain some oil. I was able to process almost 200 gallons of oil last summer on one Water Stop filter before it reduced the flow enough that I had to replace it. I'm now purchasing two more replacement filters.
