Currently using valvoline fuel filter. Have a Nissan genuine as spare but don't know if it is better than valvoline.
Also, how good can lucas filter is except it can show us the water level in filter ? Where can I get this in Dandenong area and how much ?

Thanks for any advice !

If you have a Coventry Dealer in your area try them as they deal in Lucas Filter accessories. Have Wheels Will Travel

Use a Ryco filter and stick to your original Nissan unit as it does have a light to tell you as soon as water is in the filter housing. Chances of getting water is slim today in diesel unless you are using drum fuel that is not cared for correctly. Without the light in the Lucas unit you could get a full dose of water not knowing it was there. With your Nissan original unit the light will come on while you are driving. I have seen this scenario twice with people that have changed from their original filters.

Iamgq.
THe lucas or cav filter is designed for tractors where the fuel tank is above the filter and there is always a slight positive presure, If you use them as a suck threw filter they may not allow enough fuel to you motor. I recomend using the factory filter becuse of the light and you will need it for the primer pump. The only way to use the cav is in line with a transfer pump. Eric.

Thanks Eric,
from what you say, Lucas/Cav filter has filter element which is finer than other aftermarket / genuine filter (i.e. <10micron)? If so, shouldn't it be better ?
Haven't heard ppl using it with lacking of fuel supply...........
