Fuel analysis, checking the quality of fuel, to ensure it hasn’t deteriorated or become contaminated, is as important as all other equipment maintenance procedures.
As diesel fuel deteriorates, oxidation by-products begin to form. The fuel begins to turn dark, start to smell like varnish and cause engines to smoke. The build-up of contaminants in the fuel system and storage tanks, whether by fuel deteriorating or introduced, can cause filters to block, wear out fuel pumps and injectors and engine damage.

What can you do to prevent failure
Don’t let your fuel system deteriorate and prematurely wear out due to contaminated or poor quality diesel fuel. We recommend fuel sampling at regular intervals, for example at each fuel delivery. This will enable you to detect contaminated or poor quality fuel at an early stage. Our fuel tests are compared to Australian Standards.
