Re: Bx Fuel Filter Problems
Ya, all good advice. Changing fuel filters on a BX every 100 hrs is real 'frequent' so something is 'up'.
I can't imagine that Wisconsin sells diesel fuel in a 'standard' that is different from the rest of North America, so start looking elsewhere for this fuel filter clogging up with crap issue.
GKTilton and MeanJean are spot on. The issue is not the fuel.
Check and clean or flush out the tractors tank which in itself is a big job! Consider upgrading the filters to something a little bigger since the OE Kubota inline filters are a quite small. A good Auto/Ag Parts store like NAPA will have about a dozen choices they could show you.
Replace your diesel fuel can with a correct yellow colored approved diesel fuel container and stop using the Power Source fuel Conditioner that you have been using entirely.
It is possible that it's concentration is incorrect or it is in some way reacting with the plastic fuel tank on your tractor or in the container and is creating some kind of plasticizer residue that is coating the filters and leading to their premature failure.
Let us know what you find out! this is an interesting thread that I'll be wanting to follow!
