Fuel Contamination

All you need to know about fuel contamination and how to prevent it

The discussion of fuel contamination, especially water contamination in diesel, is a hot topic in the fuel industry. Whilst all fuel can suffer from water contamination, the hygroscopic nature of today’s bio means it attracts and holds onto water, making diesel an even more likely victim of such contamination.

You probably already know that water in fuel is bad news, but it can also cause serious issues that can cost money and time. If water is left untreated in the fuel tank, there are several costly problems that you can encounter, including blocked filters and damaged fuel transfer pumps, engine failure, fuel system corrosion and poor fuel efficiency. To help you fight fuel contamination, we have prepared a range of product guides, useful articles and offer a range of products to tackle the issue.
