Fueltreat's ten steps to better diesel fuel quality


Ten Steps Inspect dip and fill points regularly. These areas can accumulate water and allow it to enter the tank. Check to make sure caps seal properly.
red triangle Do not clean or hose down vehicles directly above underground tanks, or where runoff water will flow over the tank. Detergent can enter the tank and cause water to be held up in the fuel.
red triangle Tanks must be tested regularly to ensure compliance with local regulations. Fueltreat can advise you on the most appropriate method for your tank.
red triangle Minimize condensation in vehicle, boat and equipment tanks by keeping the tanks topped up with fuel.


red triangle Inspect the fuel regularly. It should be clear and bright. Any haze in the fuel is due to water being held up in the fuel phase. This may indicate microbial (bacteria, fungi, yeast) contamination of the fuel
red triangle Remove any water from the fuel. Drain water from above ground tanks frequently. Use a small pump to remove water from underground tanks. Fueltreat does not recommend using products that disperse or take-up water into the fuel. In fact, such additives can take fuel out of specification.
red triangle If your fuel is contaminated by fuel microbes, use Fueltreat's Fuelbiocides, BC-250 or FT-400 to eliminate them. These products also protect your fuel against contamination.
red triangle If you store fuel for extended periods, use a fuel stabilizer to maximize the storage life of the fuel.
red triangle Use a water separator to protect your valuable equipment from water damage. Contact Fueltreat to discuss your requirements.
