Stephen, I fitted this filter as a pre-filter in my 200 Series.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FUEL-MANAGER-Filter-Kit-FMLC200DPK-Toyota-Landcruiser-200-Series-30-MICRON-KIT-/171357965527?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item27e5bb0cd7

(Once more the "insert link" function is not working for me so you will have to copy and paste.)

It is a 30 micron filter and leaves the 2 micron OEM filter as the final point of protection, as Toyota intended. It stops 99.99% of water but there is also a Water Watch device available that has an audible and visual alarm in the cabin. I didn't fit that device. I figured 99.99% was good enough.

On LCOOL there are some people who have fitted this with a finer 2 micron filter POST the OEM filter. That doesn't make sense to me but to each his own.

I hope this helps.

hi stephen
thanks for that did you fit it yourself
some of the links worked but not all
beats me why some people would think they need another filter after the oem filter
cheers

I think you will find Toyota filters are 10 micron.
Dealer advised and fitted mine post factory from new,
no warranty issues or problems

The Toyota OEM filter in the Landcruiser is 2 micron. Extra filters are available in a variety of specs. I chose 30 micron and put it before the original filter.

This means that the Toyota OEM filter is still the final protection before the fuel enters the engine, as Toyota intended.

Stephen,
We also have the same setup in our 200 Series. Filter kit with bracket $359.00 and $318.00 for water sensor.
In trying to keep the interior as clutter free as possible our water sensor has been placed inside the glovebox.Image Could Not Be Found

Just a comment on Ross's photo above. That rectangle with the white label on it is the pollen filter housing. Once my Dealer didn't re-seat the new filter properly and the Climate Control Aircon started to play up, and that was the reason.

I know the question is about 200 Series, but other motors are just as likely to suffer water issues in common rail fuel systems. For the Cummins engines in Dodge Rams, you can get a Fleetguard FS53000 filter, that has two filters in one. The outer element is 5 micron, the inner 3 micron. At $60, not inexpensive Nanonet Brochure
