How Clean is Your Generator’s Fuel?
Diesel fuel maintenance is an important component to consider as part of your generator’s routine preventative maintenance. Water, dirt, and algae impurities build up in diesel holding tanks in as little as 6 months and could cause a start-up malfunction when your generator is needed most.
There are clear indications to check for to determine when it is time to have diesel fuel polishing performed:
What to look for in your generator’s fuel
- Fuel is dark in color
- A muddy mass built up
- An abnormal odor
- A dirty fuel system
- Mysterious contamination
What to take notice in your engine
- Clouded exhaust
- Corroded injectors
- Clogged fuel lines
- Clogged filters
What you can do to prevent a start-up malfunction
Fortunately, there is a generator service dedicated to treat these exact symptoms—diesel fuel polishing service. With your direction, our technicians can access most generators without physical interaction by following CDC guidelines:
- Servicing will be dedicated confined to the designated work space, where the assigned technician will follow each guideline to ensure a safe and clean space.
- A “no customer signature required” policy has been implemented to limit contact; Electronic documentation will be available electronically when needed.
