sounds like you need to start buying diesel fuel some place else, as I am guessing your maybe running offload diesel and not street grade, winch is a cleaner grade of fuel, worth the few extra penny's
Next they sell a anti gel additive you can add to your tank, to prevent any gelling up, or ice issue's
I have a few diesel motored things, (truck and tractor and equipment)
and never have any issue's due to I add the additive in winter time on everything but my truck(never sits long)
but tractors and skid steers and the likes all get it
and I only run ON road diesel in them, filters don't get all plugged up or even a fraction of the dirt you say you got in your's, and they run nothing BUT off road and in many dusty places>
I say start buying fuel else where , maybe they have a dirty holding tank too, that could also have water in it??
the actual de gel and additives I speak of will help dissipate water too, if you JUST add Kero to your tank, yes on no freezing, but doesn't displace water to help get rid of it on you out of your tank
another thing to think about and don;'t know if you do this or NOT< but if you run atv outside in very cold temps and then park in a warm garage, you can be building condensation in your fuel tank due to temp changes, thus getting that water in your fuel too!
a simple fix to this is, either top the tank EVERY time you park it in warmer space, OR< park atv outside till it cools, then once cool/cold, start and drive it in and shut it off
this will help you SOME on water in tank!
any atv full of snow and ?? in a warm garage, will add a LOT of moisture to the inside of that building, increasing the odds of moisture in tank too!
another thing to do , is make sure your tank vent is working GOOD too!
