YEAR ROUND FUEL QUALITY PROGRAM

Climate Impacts Engine Performance

Studies have shown that extreme weather conditions can lead to performance issues with your diesel engine. To help protect your diesel engines, we recommend a simple to use year round fuel quality program. The program enlightens drivers to the issues and how to protect and enhance diesel engine performance for the life of the vehicle..

Winter

Cold weather climates lead to gelling or waxing of the precipitates that have collected over time within the fuel. This blocks fuel filters and prevents diesel engines from operating efficiently.

Spring & Fall

Warm days and cool nights accelerate the build-up of water in fuel tanks, which can lead to microbes thriving inside a fuel tank. The end result is corrosion and rapid filter plugging.

Summer

In summer, extreme temperatures increase the rate of water accumulation from condensation. This leads to microbial growth, fuel degradation, and corrosion issues.
Fall
  • Test tanks for water and microbial contamination
  • Drain all free water from storage tanks
  • Treat based on test results with Dri-Tek and Predator® biocide
  • Top off vehicle tanks nightly
Winter
  • Use LHT EC-1 and LHT “GOLD” for optimal protection and performance
  • Use larger micron size filters for winter operations per OEM
  • Check truck water separators often
Spring
  • Test tanks for free water and microbial contamination
  • Drain all free water from storage tanks
  • Treat based on test results with Dri-Tek and Predator® biocide
  • Top off vehicle tanks nightly
Summer
  • Use dispenser filters designed to absorb water
  • Submit a bottom sample to check for water, sediment, and microbial contamination
  • Treat per test result recommendations
