Fuel tank testing for contamination completed by ValvTect

June 21, 2010

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Unfortunately, it is all too common for gasoline and diesel storage tanks at marinas to contain excess water and other contaminants, such as bacteria, algae and debris. These contaminants can be pumped into boaters’ fuel tanks and can cause an engine to shut down or permanent damage. The presence of ethanol gasoline and ultra low sulfur diesel fuel makes this situation even worse. To combat this problem, all Certified ValvTect Marinas must have their fuel tanks tested before they are allowed to sell ValvTect Marine Fuels and up to twice a year thereafter. This testing, plus special hydroscopic fuel filters that are required to be installed on all ValvTect Marinas’ fuel pumps, helps ensure boaters that ValvTect Marine Gasoline and ValvTect Marine Diesel are free of contamination. ... read full story
