I was coming to work this morning on the
interstate when I began to smell diesel fuel
on my 84 300SD...Pulled over....fuel all over
the engine. Where? There was a crack in the
bottom of the metal (screw on ) fuel filter.
I have never heard of this. The filter is a
Borsh unit;it was replaced last November!!!
I made it home, but used almost a half tank
of fuel (20 miles). After all this, I thought about the possibility of the car
catching on fire??? Comments. Safe NOW!!

The filter had a dent in it somehow and it worked until it failed. Inspect parts closely.!!
