Are your fleet of vehicles experiencing fuel problems?

Published on June 03, 2013 under Diesel Fleet Maintanence

Are you experiencing loss of power or an intermittent loss of power coupled with an engine light on the dash board?

These symptoms could be the result of diesel fuel contamination. The longer you ignore these symptoms the more the damage to your vehicles fuel system.

Fuel contamination generally occurs in vehicles that fill up regularly from different petrol stations. Remember not all petrol stations have the same fuel and same quality control measures. Your vehicle is most vulnerable to fuel contamination when underground petrol station tanks have just been refilled by fuel tankers. This is because when new fuel enters the underground tank it causes dirt that sitting at the bottom to rise to the top.

Generally with fleet vehicles this issue wouldn’t be too uncommon as a lot of KMS are clocked every month and multiple tanks are filled. So be sure at every service the fuel filter should be removed and the fuel from the filter inspected for traces of fuel contamination such as water, algae and bio diesel.
