    You can drive, it'll decrease life of injectors somewhat from abrasive soot. Keep an eye on filters

    No damage. Just grab few filters with you and an empty gallon jug for draining and adding fuel to the filter

    I had somebody driving for 40k miles and changing filter every 5k miles. It was cup. DPF still active or removed?

    DPF is removed, i have this truck for 3 month's and spend 25 k for repairs, working only for mainteance :)
    On every 5 k miles do you replace water separator filter or the fuel filter too? I hope it will hold down for few month's, i have one year warranty on injector and cups buth also have pitting on one cup flitting probably that is making the problem.

    Run the 7um filter in your davco. Change only when it's needed. You don't need to do spin on filter doing this way.
