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.
