    Recently closed on a 52DB. Since the boat has sat for quite awhile, we had the fuel tested. Attached is the report. I was concerned with fungi. The report looks fairly good, but the particle count is high. I had the Cummins guy reach back out to ask for some more info.

    So, what would you do? Run the tank nearly empty, fill up and replace the fuel filters? Drain the tank and discard? Polish the fuel?

    If you can suck it out great, otherwise polish and read Frank's post on treating and maintaining diesel.
