I went to drain mine today, with the instrctions someone on here gave me. The yellow "switch" on the lower front of the fuel filter canister. When I did this a buch of something came out? I thought it would just be water, but it smelt like diesel. Is this normal? And do I just leave it open until it stops draining??

All you did was drain the fuel filter, if there was water in it it would have been on the bottom and came out first. Close the valve and turn the key on but don't start it just let the elect fuel pump refill the filter.

Yeah man your good. No worries! A good way to see if there is any water in the mixture is to put it in a clear container and let it settle for a bit. The diesel will float on the water.
