Strange device on fuel line
#1
Does anyone know what this is for, I am not sure if it is the feed or return on a 1.6hdi. Its got me puzzled.
May be its to make the diesel go further, about 80 inches further

How odd, I've never seen one of those before. My guess is that it's for cooling the fuel. And if so it may well be on the return side as I presume pressurising the fuel will heat it.

Yes, my thoughts were it looked like something off a fridge, presumably the fuel must be spending enough time at the engine to become warm, I wonder if all common rail diesels have them. I have never seen one before.

I was actually looking to see if I could find the dpf fuel additive reservoir. It's certainly well hidden, tucked up behind the fuel filler pipe, I guess the plastic inner wheel arch must be removed to access it / fill it up.

And here (i think) is the additive tank, situated just in front of the drivers side rear wheel arch and below the filler cap. I believe the additive tank is what the corrugated style pipe leads to, I guess the green wire goes to the sensor level.

Fuel cooling plate, as its name suggests to cool the fuel. Most commonly found on large trucks and heavy goods type vehicles...
