The OEM TDI filter only filters down to 10 microns.  OEM IDI filters are
probably also 10 micron filters.  The first generation "spin-on" filters
probably did a better job than today's filters.

Does anyone  know the  micron rating if these filters ???.
Considering the crappy fuel we have to deal with a really good filter is
paramount.      I am considering using a Stanadyne as a secondary ---just
before the pump.  Stanadyne makes a nice glass water separator as well.

There are no roads out of here , but good roads in the area.
