    I have read many posts in this forum about trying to find the tool to extract the water from the fuel filter housing. I found it at the Porsche Dealer and ordered it yesterday. It was $80 and should be here next week. I have never seen anything at Porsche for $80. When I get it I will post the part number and any other information on it's usage.

    Water being heavier than fuel it always goes to the bottom. If there is no drain on the fuel canister take the top of and use one of the vacuum extractors.

    I bought an extractor that uses compressed air to suck all the fuel and water out of the filter housing. I used it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it purged all the fuel and there wasn't any sign of water in the container. I wanted a separate extractor from my oil extractor because diesel fuel can sometimes ruin the plastic.
