Diesel Fuel Polishing
Over time, microbial bacteria, algae and sludge flourishes as moisture condenses in the tank, leaving you with dirty fuel that will harm your generator. Megawattage has a Diesel fuel polishing system that removes these contaminants from the bottom of the tank and adds a fuel catalyst. The fuel is then circulated through a fuel conditioner and a series of filters that will clean and restore the fuel to a clear and bright condition — saving you fuel costs and ensuring the generator engine will operate efficiently at a moment’s notice.
Megawattage will provide you a fuel analysis of which will show you before and after samples along with a report to demonstrate our findings / solution. No matter if your tank is 50 gallons or 5000 gallons, Megawattage has the equipment that will clean, condition, and restore your diesel fuel to maximize its reliability.
If I store my fuel in an auxiliary tank, do I still need to clean my fuel?
Yes – Dormant fuel for a length of time will become contaminated with microbial bacteria. You must clean this fuel prior to dispensing such within your generator otherwise you run the risk of incurring costly repairs.
If I pour a fuel conditioner in my tank, is that enough to clean the fuel.
No – Algae and sludge forms on the sides and bottom of the tank. We need to remove / circulate such contaminants and run the fuel thru an extensive filtration process.
How often should I clean the fuel in my generator?
If your fuel remains dormant throughout the year we recommend cleaning such fuel on an annual basis. Megawattage does offer a Diesel Fuel Polishing Service within its Preventive Maintenance program.
