Some maintenance tips.

This weekend I tackled the oil, filter change and fuel filters. The oil and filter is very easy. Only have to take off air intake tube to access the filter. My gripe comes in with the fuel filters. I undid the water sep screw and let drain for a few mins, there is a lot of diesel that comes out of this. I then got impatient and decided to go ahead and take filters out. Which is very easy and self explanatory but I could not believe the amount of diesel that is wasted by changing these filters. I had diesel everywhere, I still smell like diesel 2 days later. My best advise to anyone doing this is to find a big bucket and let it sit under there and drain while you are waiting for oil to drain at the same time. And now the question of what to do with all the diesel? I don't feel comfortable putting it back into jeep considering it came out of the water sep drain.
