Fuel Polishing question - Fuel Replacement

- Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Q: We have a number of diesel fuel tanks for backup generators.  We normally replace our fuel once per year and use very little during the course of a normal year. Our tanks are inside and never exposed to very high or very low temperatures. Does fuel polishing improve this replacement time? By how much? 

A: Yes, fuel polishing systems when installed correctly will prevent the accumulation of water in the bottom of the tank and extend the life of your fuel thereby reducing your replacement time.

Water at the bottom of the tank allows bacteria, mold and other biological organisms to live in the tank, feed on the fuel and create sludge. In addition, fuel oxidizes over time which creates the dark brown color that you see. This too can all be filtered out with a polisher.

(The use of additives such as ILFC Ten-35 should be added to the tank every time you fuel or every six (6) months. This will cause all water in the tank to coalesce and drop to the bottom as Free Water where the polishing system can remove it before bacteria starts to grow. ILFC is also a stabilizer and Cetane enhancer.)

You can easily extend the life of the fuel beyond two (2) years and in some cases three (3) years with fuel polishing. The ROI on a large fuel polisher would be one (1) year or less.

Canada Requires Two Percent Renewable Diesel Fuel

- Tuesday, March 08, 2011
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, February 14, 2011 (ENS) - The Canadian government has set a start date of July 1, 2011 for requiring an average of two percent renewable diesel in all diesel fuel sold in Canada.

Renewable diesel is defined as a diesel fuel substitute made from renewable materials such as vegetable oil, waste cooking oil, animal fat, fish oil or cellulosic feedstocks consisting of agriculture and forest biomass. Biodiesel is one common example of a renewable diesel.

"When we announced our Renewable Fuels Strategy, we were clear that the two percent requirement would be implemented subject to technical feasibility," said Environment Minister Peter Kent, announcing the new policy on Thursday. "After positive results, we are moving forward with this requirement which will result in further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately in cleaner air for all Canadians."

Customer question regarding OP-6

- Thursday, February 10, 2011
Q: I have purchased OP-6 12V oil change pump for my Perkins 4-107. Do I have to install a shut off valve between the hose from my oil pan to the OP-6 pump? The OP-6 pump is mounted on the forward bulkhead just in front of the engne. The OP-6 is level with the top of the enigine. My concern is bleed pass the impeller.

A: For the integrity of the oil system it is always wise to install a shut-off valve at the oil pan of the equipment. This insures that in the event of a failure in the hose or oil pump that the engine does not loose oil and fail.

Also, the pump would work better if you can mount it a little lower on the bulkhead. Your impeller will not have to work as hard to lift the oil and priming will be quicker.

Customer question regarding oil change system

- Wednesday, February 02, 2011
Q: "If I purchase a 4 port oil changer, can two lines be used for engine coolant and 2 for oil. Thanks Mike"

A: Good question. While the pump is quite capable of pumping both coolant and oil, it is not recommended using the same system to do both. The probability of cross contamination is so great that you could conceivably ruin an engine or cooling system causing yourself a great deal of expense.

We highly recommend against it. You would be ahead of the game by installing a GP3012 oil change system, then using a GP311 pump with a VP2 valve manifold to change the coolant. This will keep the two systems separate and eliminate the possibility of any contamination.

Diesel Free from Biofuels

UK. MDL Marinas becomes first marina operator to respond to widespread diesel legislation concern

Monday, 17 January 2011

MDL Marinas, Europe’s largest marina operator, has become the first UK marina group to offer diesel free from biofuels at its marina fuel stations. The move comes in response to growing concerns of boat owners, and sees MDL Marinas lead the way in the industry to become the first marina operator to meet the new British standard in this way.

A growing number of boaters have expressed concern over the increased risk of diesel bug due to the introduction of new fuel legislation. Diesel bug is feared because it can contaminate fuel tanks - quickly clogging filters and causing loss of power and engine breakdown. MDL has been working to secure the new diesel and is now offering low-sulphur fuel which is free from all biofuels (FAME-free), in accordance with the new British standard BS 2869:2010 – Class A2.

Dean Smith, Marketing Director at MDL Marinas, said: “We understand our customers concerns over biodiesel content in marine fuel, and through the support of our supplier, we are delighted to be able to secure supplies of diesel which meet the new British standard.
“To ensure this fuel reaches the pump in top condition, we conduct regular fuel tank cleaning and testing. This supply and our steps to ensure we maintain our fuel quality, gives our customers all the environmental benefits of low sulphur fuel with the added peace of mind that the potential problems of biodiesel will be avoided.”
