Keeping your generator’s fuel & reservoir clean
Many of our customers have generators and every month they need to be evaluated to keep them ready for emergency situations. From farms & construction sites to hospitals, companies are brushing the dust off of their diesel generators and firing them up to see how well they run… That being said, many of our customers don’t know that they could be expedited part failures their generators with their process.
Having trouble with your generator?
Diesel fuel that has been sitting in storage tanks and generator tanks for weeks, months, or years is not fit to burn without treatment. Regarding how long fuel with biodiesel should be allowed to sit in a reservoir, OEM’s like Ford, Cummins, and CAT range from 1-6 months. In our experience, not many people know about biodiesel OEM recommendations. Attempting to burn contaminated diesel fuel in your engine can flood your engine with contaminants, water, and microbial sludge. These contaminants settle once the engines cool down and create a wall of sludge that can cause critical failures and expensive repairs.

Using our proprietary methods, we have some fuel lasting years and still going! First things first, if your fuel has been sitting with fuel in the tank for any period of time, it’s best to test it before starting your engine.
