Re: FUEL TANK FILTER 304 E

My local Cat dealer researched this, and has gone out of the way helping me with this and another issue.  However, they cannot find any info on "fuel tank filter" for a 304E excavator.  It is very annoying to have this warning light on all the time.  I would think that Cat at the corporate level could answer this question, but evidently wont.   When searching for an excavator in the 304 class, I found some of the other manufacturer's machines had better features and prices, but went with cat because of their reputation for support (technical advice and parts availability).  I am thinking a made a mistake.  Another ridiculous feature is the thumb on the 304.  It is essentially a hydraulic folding mechanical thumb, as you have to curl into it to pick anything.

FUEL TANK FILTER 304 E

[ Edited ]

My machine is a 304 E CAT excavator. I have a warning light that came up on my display that says: "! Fuel Tank Filter Change". It was green at first, now is orange. It has been on for about 10 hours. I contacted CAT twice about it, and even drove 100 miles the the CAT Dealership with a photo I took of the display. They spent about an hour on their computers, and told me they don't know what it is. Can someone please help??
