Diesel fuel when having been in storage for an extended period of time, holds the increasing possibility of contamination.
Common causes of contamination in diesel can be water, fungal and bacteria.
Even if a tank is properly sealed and there are no leaks, a tank will generally have a small amount of water build-up in the tank because of condensation.
Bacteria thrive within the water and oxygen interface. As water is heavier than diesel, this results in “sludge” built up in the bottom of a tank.
This “sludge” can contaminate the diesel, causing the diesel to damage equipment, therefor highlighting the need cleaning.
Many problems affiliated with diesel fuel systems often come from contaminated diesel.
