Why Fuel Polishing

Fuel polishing is the technical cleaning process used to remove or filter microbial contamination from diesel fuel in storage. It is essentially the removal of water, sediment and microbial contamination. This fuel contamination, also known as ‘fuel bugs’ or ‘diesel bugs’ build up over time in stored fuels if they aren’t tested and treated on a regular basis.

  1. Stored fuel will have some of the following issues for sure any of which will lead to engine failure at the wrong time. Water, Microbial Growth (AKA Diesel Bugs), Bacteria, Bio-film, Rust or Dirt.

The symptoms of diesel bugs are easy to see. Blocked Filters, Fuel System Failure, Worn Fuel Injectors, Corroded Tanks, Engine Failure all will come from old fuel that has never been polished.
