Ive had no results at all with this and the residue still collected in the tank. I didnt use water in the unit so maybe thats the problem, any ideas why it didnt work? Since then i havent used the seperator unit because it hasnt worked the way i set it up.

There should be water in that separator, the input line is below the water, the output line is above.

You will collect something in the water, it is smelly after a few weeks. It will eliminate the slime on the gas line in the tank.
