changed the filter today hopefully this is why it idled a little rough
old filter has 50 000km on it and this is the fuel that come out of it.
i think i should change it more often.

My fuel filters never looked that dirty even when they were nearly %100 blocked.

I think your fuel tank needs a clean.

Yeah that's incredible. As he said, clean the tank out and stop using that bowser you use all the time (if you keep going to the one place that is). Seek another place to get your fuel. :oops:

thats definately not right. Check your tank, or just take your fuel pump out, and have a look at the sock, if that fuel filter was in that condition, I dunno how long your pump is going to last.


Cheers

how long has it taken you to do that 50,000km? remember, the m'mt servo had some work done on its tanks/lines/pumps not too long ago
