BP Australia Podcast Series: How to Improve Diesel Storage and the Proper Maintenance of Fuel Systems
This 2nd podcast in the BP Podcast Series for 2012 highlights the importance of the proper handling and maintenance practices for diesel fuel specific to Diesel Storage as well as the maintenance of Fuel Systems.
Mike Tuminello, Product Assurance and Technical Advisor at BP shares insights into modern diesel engines and how they use high pressure common rail injection to achieve higher efficiencies leading to a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions. To achieve this they require fuel of the highest quality.
The first part of this discussion – under the wider umbrella of Diesel Storage – is about proper handling and maintenance practices for diesel fuel. So let’s start with an overview of what’s happening with diesel storage and contaminants. Mike and Mining IQ discussed in-depth:
- How diesel technology has evolved throughout the past two decades and the impact of this change
- The main differences between mechanical and modern injection systems
- Modern injector technology advances in fuel efficiency and the changes that efficiency has meant with respect the demands of the fuel
- Good tips on how to keep your diesel in storage in the best condition, thereby ensuring that your diesel engines will run more efficiently.
