Like Dan said only the separator type fuel filters have a water drain on the bottom

Heck i am still trying to figure out how to drain water out of the fuel tank. I have rub rails and no little door or drain at the bottom of the siding like the 5 A's
My filters have drains on the housing.

 If you have drains "on the housings" then you probably have the original "sock" type filters, not the later spin on-throw away type.>>>Dan

Is it true that all 8V92 engines are turbo?
