Bilge Filters

I spent a comfortable night aboard Milly M but this morning I still have the problem I had last night with the Diesel in the bilges. I think there must be about 20gallons of diesel in there. I still don't know what to do with it, some say filter it back into the tank, and others say not, but hopefully by the end of the working day I will have a clearer idea.

Did I mention that the boot lock on my car has died?

There should be company's over there that filter diesel fuel and then have them pump it back into your tank.

cheers bill. I have found something to put on the bilge pump in future so it pumps out water, but there will always be some contamination. I will ditch the diesel I have collected.
