diesel fuel filter
Indeed you can use a water filter from Home Depot and a two to ten micron filter to filter your diesel.
Moreover you can do watever you want. What you can´t is to avoid the consequences.
95% of the troubles in marine diesel, according to specialists, are due to problem in the fuel systems. This is filtering and filtering.
Even if the diesel filter cost is 4 times the water comparable, the magnitude of dollars compared to the cost of the engine, injector or the boat itself, is peanuts. Moreover, is even worse compared with preventing to start your engine when you need it.
I would tie to diesel filters.
