Was that black at one stage? Good luck with the fuel issue. Hope no damage done!

I'm sure you know how damaging water is to a Diesel engine. Best not to drive the vehicle until the fuel has been drained form the tank and replaced with new fuel. Your service station may be the culprit, try a new station.Also there will be mixed fuel at the injectors etc so that should be replaced too. You should put some fuel conditioner that cancels out water, should be available at reputable auto accessory shops.

Are there bigger mudflaps available? Don't think they would help that much on these here roads though, but maybe they would keep the mud off the windshield.

Must have been some bad fuel, first(and last) time I fill at that pump/station. Light stayed lit a while this morning until I hit an incline when the light went out, it then proceeded to fade in and out for a couple of km as I was acceding/descending hills until it stayed out. Going to pick up some diesel conditioner on the way home for god measure, but it seems to have rectified itself without any harm done. Filter has done what its supposed to do I assume.

Just a side note, the fuel filter is a pain to get to for being a serviceable item. Had to remove air box, battery and ECU(Or what I assume is the ECU, two big cables going in and no hoses). In retrospect I could probably have just opened the air box and still got the battery out, but I had so many dead flies and mosquitoes in it, I decided to pull it so I could tip em on the bonfire.

So lets keep our fingers crossed it stays out until its due to be replaced in 12000km.

I think you should replace the fuel filter ASAP. At here it's included in every service (1 yr / 30k km), no matter how much less than that it's been since the last service. Generally any diesel fuel sold in Nordics is good quality, and the diesel bug is rare in our cold climate, but there's always a possibility of some water finding way to the tank (and water is what the diesel bug needs in order to grow).

The oversized mudflaps are available (however not much bigger than normal version). Check out this PDF document, page 25:

Thanks @tohis

With mudflaps, I'm sure every extra cm counts! I will get a quote on them anyway. If the price is decent I'll have em fitted.

It is very odd that the filter is changed at 2y or 60k km here, when 1y 30k km seems standard elsewere, if anything it should be the same here as in finland! I will take a trip by the dealer and see what they say.

Im guessing either its accumulated water over the filters lifetime or a bad batch of fuel. Neither is farfetched.
