The Best Ways to Prevent Fuel Contamination

Date: 28/04/2023

Fuel contamination can cause a variety of issues in the running of your vehicles.

Tank erosion, blocked filters and increased oil and fuel consumption can all be caused by contaminated fuel. It can cause serious engine problems such as poor performance, sudden loss of power, sputtering and involuntary speed changes.

Prevention is the best solution to fuel contamination. There are several steps you can take to prevent water, debris and microbes in your fuel.

Even after taking these steps, fuel contamination is a common issue and can be unavoidable.

To avoid wasting contaminated fuel, we offer fuel polishing and tank cleaning services. Fuel polishing filters out debris and other particles and removes water from the fuel. The polished fuel can be returned to a clean tank, saving you from large fuel replacement costs.

Fuel that has been contaminated with water can also be salvaged with Octasolve. This treatment dissolves water in fuel, quickly neutralising the problem and preventing it from causing further issues like corrosion and diesel bug.

If you have been experiencing problems with your fuel or would like to know more about contamination prevention, get in touch at 0113 2012 460. We will be happy to help save you money on fuel replacement and engine maintenance costs.
