Both of our vehicles had problems with bad fuel whilst crossing the Simpson and neither of us had taken a spare fuel filter......Both vehicles made it to Birdsville ok but it would have been more comfortable with spares...

Hi Voxson
always carry one & on extended trips take 2, cheap insurance incase you get bad fuel.

It can be a problem when a vehicle is usually driven on relatively smooth roads too, a long jaunt on corrugated rough roads can stir the rubbish up from the bottom of the fuel tank which will lead to clogged filters.
I always carry a couple of spare fuel filters all the time just in case. Good idea to fit anew one before you leave home too.

Having yet to experience this dodgy fuel (diesel) phenomenon, I'm wondering if simply changing the filters is all I should do if caught in a remote spot ?
I take two filters (they are quite compact), but should I seek to drain any stuff from the bottom of the tank ? Seems nobody makes a Lucas glass bowl filter adaptor for the Jack, or might have put one of those in line too.

I always carry a spare glass fuel bowl also just in case the other breaks

I think I'll start a new thread by asking about fitting extra fuel filters, but the question is has anyone done it, and what brand did they choose?
