Default Diesel Fuel Decontamination Units Give Stored Fuel Longer Life.

Diesel powered equipment, plagued with breakdowns caused by contaminated and
aged fuel, now have an option other than continually changing filters after
the problem arrives. Developed by Dieselcraft Fluid Engineering of Auburn,
California has a line of Strontium Ferrite "Fuel Stabilizers" that will
decontaminate and stabilize the diesel fuel without the use of chemical
additives.

Diesel fuel producers will admit that the addition of additives, to
perfectly good fuels or fuel over 28 days old may add to the blockage of
fuel filters. Add water from vents or condensation and you have a breeding
ground for bacteria.

The misdiagnosis of the problem and the insertion of chemical additives may
do more harm than good. Some additives will discolor water in the filter
bowl appearing like fuel. This results in a water problem that cannot be
diagnosed. Combustion improvers may create a waxy build up on fuel filters
and detergent and biocides may carry dirt and rust to the filter.



The Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilizers will reconstitute aged fuel as the engine
is running for routine maintenance or for seasonal use. Installed between
the fuel tank and primary fuel filter, the fuel that goes to the engine is
treated and goes back to the tank via a return line also treated and brought
back from a questionable state in a short period. Once re-stabilized, the
fuel should have its life clock reset until the unit is run again.

Now stabilized fuel will burn cleaner thereby producing more power, less
smoke, and less carbon buildup.

Now here is where I get lost. The process of adding anything to a
liquid, gas or solid to change its composition is chemistry in one
sense or another - thus is a chemical additive.

Oh well...

Strontium-90 (90Sr) has a half-life of 28 years. It is a product of nuclear
fallout and presents a major health problem. Perhaps they are irradiating
the fuel, killing and blasting apart the microorganisms.

Umm... use a polishing system?

I just don't understand why so many people think that changing filters
is a problem. That's what the filter IS THERE FOR... to keep crap from
getting into the injection pump, injectors, and the whole rest of the
engine. When the filter needs to be changed, that means IT IS WORKING!

A $3 filter element that saves a $7K engine sounds like very effective &
sensible engineering to me.

And if you have lots of crap in the tank, do as the Alaska boats do. Use a
day tank (at least that is what I think they call it). A separate small
tank the big tank pumps into. Then the engine gets it's fuel from the small
tank. The small tank will let the crud settle out and can be removed from
the small tank. And the fuel filter gets the smaller stuff that did not
settle out.

Filters & water traps are the fix
