    well, I think its time to change the fuel filter- Getting a little harder to start up, and am starting to not be able to spin the motor more than 3000 rpm- also being bogged under full throttle.

    Yes, I believe it is time to change- What good is that service fuel filter soon light?!?!?!

    Forgot to ask- do these symptoms seem reasonable of a fuel filter clog? It idles just fine.

    well, low and behold, my fuel filter was clogged! but it wasnt clogged with french fries ok?! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Acutally, when I emptied the fuel out of the system, you could not tell the difference really between 100% diesel and my mix of 50/50.
