New red ULSD will, in all probability, contain up to 7% biodiesel and this tends to attract water. If it is not removed it can promote bacterial growth (diesel bug) that will inevitably lead to the formation of sludge that can corrode fuel tanks, block fuel filters and damage injection systems.
Agriculural machinery can spend long periods of time standing idle and then need to be brought in to play at short notice at critical times due to the fickle nature of our weather systems and seasonal changes.
Crops wont wait and the sun and rain do not always work in the farmers favour.
Discovering that the all important machine needed that day or week has had its fuel tank infected with diesel bug is a major concern to farmers and contractors, and the thought of losing hundreds of litres of red diesel to try and cure the problem also hits the purse before the crops are even harvested or the ground ploughed.
Fuel polishing to eliminate diesel bug is becoming more accepted as the method to be sure the fuel tanks are free of diesel bug, water, sludge and other debris, with no fuel lost as a result of the diesel bug cleaning process.
Fuel lines will still have to be cleaned and filters changed but that is a part of regular maintenance more readily available at short notice.
