Default WIF Sensor

The Water In Fuel sensor started leaking on my truck a month or so back. I though maybe somehow the drain valve wasn't closed all the way, but I can't seem to get it to stop dripping. It doesn't leak enough to be much of a problem and I have only had one time that there was enough air in the fuel to cause a slight stumble upon starting. Long story short, I looked online for one (part number Dorman 904-193) and it can even be purchased through Walmart for about $28! I looked at a local auto parts store and they want almost $95 for the same thing!! Anyhow, I spent some time looking and found out there are filters that will fit mine that do not have the WIF sensor. Mine has been unplugged for years so I figured I can get by without it. I went to O'Rielly Auto and purchased a Wix 33357 filter for $18. It is a water separator and has a drain valve on it too. Now I need to get some tubing to put on the leaking drain to catch fuel so I can change the filter in the campground without leaking a bunch of fuel. I am getting real tired of smelling fuel close to my truck......

Nope! I have no intention of replacing it! Since it has not been used for a bunch of years and none of the semi trucks I drove had one I probably can get by without it!

Well, I changed the filter a few days ago and guess what........ It was still dripping fuel. The bottom of the new filter had fuel dripping off the drain so I followed the wet trace and it was from the top of the filter housing. After wiping a bit of fuel from it I found the inlet banjo bolt was seeping. It only took about 1/8 turn to snug it up and stop the seep so now maybe it won't be dripping fuel (sweating horse power?) any more.......
