We have a 2012 D-Max . Can anybody see any problems with flow etc. in fitting a 296-lucas/delphi/cav/ryco deisel fuel filter-water seperator and where is the best place to fit it apart from access should it be closest to the tank or closest to the pump or where ever it fits the best without being damaged and or in sight.

Here we go again.
The Dmax has a fuel flow rate of around 30 L/h and runs a pressure of 6-7 psi.

The Delphi is a good filter for conventional diesels but is designed for vacuum/suction delivery and not for a pressure system. It will work but seeing it has a flow rate of high 20's L/h there is no reserve capacity and is likely to cause a restriction once it gets a bit of crap or water in it. Dmax filter rated approx 57L/h

So, I didn't fit a Delphi for those reasons.

The Dmax has a restriction sensor at the top and a water sensor in the bottom.

I fitted a Donaldson P 902976 flow fuel kit. 2 filters in the kit
This kit flows 120 l/h and is suited for up to 100 psi.
It is a water separater and has a quick drain bowl.
Fitted before the OE filter it will help trap particles and water. If restriction or water happen then the OE system will detect as normal. However, you should check the new additional filter often anyway and drain off as required.

No room under bonnet, I mounted mine on a cross member underneath between the gbox and the OE filter, on a purpose made bracket. Short hoses.
There are also other brands available but quite a bit dearer.
Isuzu don't condone the use of any additional filters, but if dealers don't change the one on the vehicle, as often happens, you have problems anyway.
