Fuel filters were changed after a Diesel Purge at the last valve adjust in early November. Problem happens with a full or empty tank of fuel. Primer pump might be a year old now and is the new style. I don't know about water in the fuel, I might purchase some addative and give that a try. I've always fueled at the same location (unless on a road trip, then always at FlyingJ) with both the CD and SD and my parents fill their '85D up at the same location. I've never had a quality issue with their fuel.
