Today’s modern fuel’s contain ETHANOL and BIO-DIESEL which attract water and cause issues such as phase separation, corrosion, fuel decay, instability, and contaminants. These issues directly affect your engines and power equipment in a negative way.
Ethanol Blended Gasoline
Ethanol blended gasoline (the E-10 gas you buy at the pump) contains 10% Ethanol. Ethanol in fuel attracts water and settles on the bottom of your fuel tank to cause a corrosive Ethanol / Water mixture (phase separation). This corrosive mix moves from the fuel tank to your engine causing problems such as varnish / gum, severe corrosion, and dried / brittle rubber and plastic parts.
Diesel and Bio-Diesel
Diesel and Bio-Diesel fuel is also problematic. Water in diesel and bio-diesel fuel promotes a water / algae / sludge mix to form in the fuel tank. This contaminated mix moves from the fuel tank to the engine causing problems including clogged injectors / pumps, algae / sludge, lower fuel mileage, and plugged fuel filters.
