As the months start to get colder it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the winter, especially if you manage a fleet of vehicles. This means preventing water and diesel bug from getting in your fuel tanks and causing a nuisance.
What’s wrong with having water in your fuel tank?
If you get water inside the diesel fuel tank of your fleet vehicles then this can become a costly problem. Deposits of water in diesel fuel turn into ice crystals as the weather gets colder and these ice crystals can clog up your fuel tank’s filters and restrict the flow of diesel to the engine.
How does water contamination affect your fleet of vehicles?
If you get water contamination in your transport fleet’s fuel tanks then you may suffer from a loss of power through the engine, costing more money in fuel as efficiency is reduced. Furthermore, you can expect the lifespan of your parts to decrease substantially, with your vehicle’s engines needing to be replaced and maintained more regularly, costing more money in the long run.
What is the best way to prevent water contamination?
Aquasolve is a specially designed treatment for diesel fuel that breaks down the water in the tank and actually bonds this to the fuel itself. What this means is that all the water in the tank is taken care of and the diesel fuel itself is optimised, running at much greater efficiency, with higher combustive properties. This reduces costs for the fuel itself and on engine maintenance and repair, freeing up more budget that can be used to expand the business.
