about 2 weeks ago my fuel filter light would start to come on then go off figured it was nothing because i just changed it like 4 weeks ago... well today i was going down the highway goin about 75 80 and the light came on and then after drivin it for about 2 hours it would start to run like crap and drop down to 70 and then it would let up and go back up to 75 80 and i didnt move my foot on the pedal once.. so i went to auto zone got another filter put it on drove it got up to about 65 and fuel filter light cam back on slowed back down to 55 and it went off but it ran fine.. idk what the deal is anyone have any ideas? sorry for this being so long.

the reason i asked is... biodiesel cleans out all your lines and tank and makes your fuel filters clog up a lot at first untill everything is cleaned out.
