Fuel water seporator

Hi all I'm going to fit a second fuel water seporator is it better to fit close to the fuel tank or closer to the engine ? I already have a seporator fitted in the Etec i was thinking of putting it inside the console any views please.

is your battery in the console? If so I don't think that is a good place for the separator - you don't want petrol fumes or worse petrol near electrics. But yes put it in a nice and dry place for servicing.

Somewhere where you are likely to actually SEE them, IMO. If you're a "checker" then fine, but otherwise, somewhere you have to eyeball in the course of your day.

Console every time. Also give it a spray over with silicone spray once it's all in & fitted. Try & avoid using PTFE to seal the hose barbs, use a jointing compound such as this
