My manual states:

Inspect the plastic bowl on the bottom of the filter.
If the filter fluid looks contaminated or if you can see two different liquids in the bowl, then the separator bowl should be drained".
I doubt that anyone drains their separator if/when only clean diesel fuel is visible in the bowl.
