    Have you drained the filter housing of water? There is a drain screw underneath. It needs doing every year or so to remove any water from the fuel that collects there.

    If the separator is full of water and water is spilling over into the fuel delivery line to the pump, then it will cause issues. Mainly because water doesn't burn very well. It will also tned to cause wear to the pump etc, as the fuel is the pump lubricant.

    As to making it cut out, at speed, no, - at idle, maybe. Try draining the water off. You only need to drain about half a cup of fluid. Just make sure some diesel has come out and all the water will be out as diesel floats on water. (this is the principle of how the fuel / water separator works.)
