Marine Fuel : The Problems & The Solutions

Fuel quality, especially for marine fuel, has become a topic of conversation for many years. But how does one protect their boat or watercraft from the affects of these trends?

BEWARE THE DANGERS OF E-15

We are all familiar with E-10 (gasoline that contains 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline) but now the EPA has mandated E-15 – gas that contains 15% ethanol – and it is now being marketed and sold at local gas stations. The reason that this is important is because ethanol is corrosive to certain metals and […]

When Should I Use An Anti-Gel?

There’s a lot of upsides to diesel fuel. More vehicular power, greater fuel economy, but one of the main downsides of diesel fuel is that it does not fair well in cold weather. When temperatures drop, diesel forms crystals that clog fuel fuel filters and fuel lines. Not only does this cause engines not to […]

Heating Oil Dormant Months

Dreaded DPFs

The Problems with EGRs, DPFs, & SCRs Keeping the air clear of pollutants and poisonous gases that are expelled from diesel vehicles has always been a concern and one the EPA decided to tackle in earnest in 2007.

The New Fuel Contaminant: Asphaltenes

Over 500 refineries worldwide turn oil into fuels that we use to power our cars, trucks, and construction equipment every day. Unfortunately these fuels run the risk of contamination. One of the overlooked contaminants that heavy machinery and trucking operators are starting to see are asphaltenes. Asphaltenes are formed when diesel fuel is heated under […]

Emulsifiers vs. Demulsifiers

All Fuel Additives are NOT created equal Both gas or diesel can attract water into fuel tanks through natural condensation, loose fitting fuel caps, or groundwater seepage into underground tanks. Water can be extremely detrimental to your vehicle: degrading fuel quicker, initiating phase separation, as well as causing corrosion and possibly complete and total destruction […]
