Fuel Quality Program

Female Lab Tech

Do you trust the condition of your fuel tanks?

The first step to a structured Fuel Quality Program is knowing the condition of your tanks and the fuel inside of them. It is important to test fuel samples periodically throughout the year. We recommend testing at least twice per year, once before the start of the winter season, and once coming out of the winter season. Below is an overview of our program offering.

In the Field (Sampling & Treatment)

  • Our staff will take samples from all tanks (or as many tanks as desired) and send them to the lab.
  • Preventative treatment with additive (optional)
  • Filter Change
  • Additional services include: tank maintenance services, fuel polishing, tank cleaning and diesel additives
Good Fuel Sample

In the Lab (Testing)

  • All samples taken will be sent off to the lab
  • Fuel samples tested (Standard or Mission Critical packages offered – see below)
  • Test results can be sent via Email or US Mail
  • If a sample result from a certain tank would happen to show an excess amount of moisture or bacteria, to the point that we deem is harmful to the fuel, tank, and equipment engine system, additional treatment or other action may be necessary.

*All test results will be retained on customers account
