WATER IN FUEL
Water Watch accurately detects, removes
and reports even small amounts of water
before it enters your diesel engine fuel
Water is one of the main causes of damage to
common rail fuel system components. It can
cause parts to seize due to poor lubrication and
produce rust and corrosion on internal metal
components, which in turn causes pump and
A fuel system alone for common rail engines can
cost between $8000 and $15,000 to repair.
One problem normally associated with fitting
extra aftermarket fuel filters with water bowls is
that filters will restrict the fuel flow. This can
cause common rail diesels to lose power and fuel
The Water Watch System, once installed is
specifically designed so that it does not reduce
fuel flow or fuel pressure, making it applicable to
all diesel engines.
It detects and reports even small amounts of
water before it enters the diesel engine fuel
An audible alarm and warning light indicate
when dangerous levels of water are retained in
the glass bowl, which can then be drained off.
The Water Watch system is manufactured and
sold by Responsive Engineering Australia Pty

With over 300 vehicles on display over three
pavilions, the National Motor Museum (Australia)
must ensure that each vehicle is maintained and
preserved, requiring a lot of time and money.
There are many challenges in maintaining such a
large collection of vintage and classic cars and
these are related to having water in the cooling
system for an extended period of time.
Conventional engine coolants, which are generally
made up of ethylene glycol, water and corrosion
inhibitor only do so much when it comes to
protecting the cooling system against corrosion
and crystallisation. In most cases if coolant is not
circulated often enough, the coolant solution
separates rendering the mixture useless. The
result is corroding of system components and
crystallisation of additives within the cooling
Recognising the benefits of Evans Waterless
Engine Coolants, the National Motor Museum has
converted a number of their collection vehicles.
Removing water from the cooling system and
replacing it with Evans Waterless Engine Coolant
means that there will no longer be the threat of
corrosion and crystallisation whether the engine
is running regularly or being stored for extended
periods. Best of all, Evans coolants are good for
the lifetime of the engine and never need to be
“The National Motor Museum (Australia) has
installed Evans Waterless Coolant into a number
of its collection vehicles. We are very satisfied
with the professional support and high standard
of service provided by Evans Cooling Systems
Australasia,” Senior Curator for the National
Motor Museum, Matthew Lombard, said.
