Diesel Fuel Storage
It is recommended that stored fuel be tested, expiration dates tracked, and stale or degraded fuel be replaced or reconditioned (NFPA 110) on, at the very least, an Annual basis. This applies for generators, marinas, storage and day trucks and more.
Critical Power Group provides in-depth chemical analysis and breakdown of all Fuel Samples on-site as well as through laboratory examinations. All fuel samples tested are required to meet the ASTM Standards.
Contamination of fuel by water and dirt entering the fuel as a result of careless fuel handling may cause poor diesel engine performance. Extreme care must be exercised. Fuel-tank caps, dispensing nozzles and hoses should be kept clean to eliminate potential sources of contamination. Regularly removing water from storage tanks, vehicle fuel tanks, and filter bowls is important. Dry storage systems will reduce fuel emulsion problems, injection system corrosion and microbial growth. Read more in our Contaminated Diesel Fuel and the Effects of Untreated Serviced Diesel Fuel Guide.
See our Diesel Fuel Standards Recommendations Industry Regulations document for more details about regulations, codes and standard for diesel fuel storage from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
New Standards for Diesel Fuel Refiners will be required to start producing diesel fuel for use in highway vehicles with a sulfur content of no more than 15 parts per million (ppm), beginning June 1, 2006. At the terminal level, highway diesel fuel sold as low sulfur fuel will be required to meet the 15 ppm sulfur standard as of July 15, 2006. For retail stations and fleets, highway diesel fuel sold as low sulfur fuel 3 must meet the 15 ppm sulfur standard by September 1, 2006. This is known as Ultra-Low Sulfur Highway Grade Diesel Fuel. For more information, see the Ultra-Low Sulfur Recommendations.
