Diesel fuel quality can be a key indicator of overall system health, and poor-quality fuel can lead to abnormal wear - driving up maintenance and operating costs. Regular fuel analysis also plays an important role in meeting emissions requirements by minimising diesel particulates.

Periodically testing your fuel is an easy way to spot common issues like water contamination, which can lead to filter-plugging microbe growth. Prolong the life of your parts and get good insight into issues like hard starting, wear and power loss as well as fuel specification.

Tests and interpretation include:
  • Biodiesel content
  • Sulphur content
  • Elemental analysis
  • Particle count
  • Water (Karl Fisher titration)
  • Visual inspection
  • Microbial growth (bacteria and fungi)
