    The fuel water seperator should be drained maybe once per month and when parking at the end of the season.
    The water should settle to the bottom. You only drain out water droplets, not fuel.
    If you’re getting good fuel, maybe only a thimble full at a time. So little that it won’t need repriming.
    Do it the first day you fuel each month or some other routine time. When you check oil. That way you start it up and drive it away.
    Water, in fuel, is your enemy.

    Thank you sir. That should do the trick.

    And a plow on a Hino195 would be pretty dam cool.

    Sitting three months does he need an Algecide in the fuel tanks?
    In my 40 years, I never used any.
    My trucks seldom sat, and fuel is so much different than years ago.
