Stick to the schedule with direct into equipment fuel resupply
- 01 September 2017
Besides breakdowns and maintenance, one of the biggest causes of downtime for vehicles and equipment is replenishing the fuel tanks. But what if you were able to arrive at your site and have all of your equipment refuelled and ready to go for the day before your workers even arrive? That’s just one of the many benefits direct into equipment on-site mobile refuelling can offer.
How does direct into equipment fuelling work?
How often do you see a crane, harvester or tractor roll into your local petrol station? Private fuel companies, such as Bulk Fuel Australia, offer on-site fleet fuelling via direct into equipment fuel methods, also known as wet hosing.
Your bulk fuel supplier will utilise a tanker to suit your accessibility requirements, which is then driven to your private property or work site. From there, the fuel is directly transported from the fuel tanker to the heavy machinery tank or storage tank. Fuelling directly into equipment eliminates the need to wrangle all your equipment together and transport them to the nearest fuel station (not that’d you’d ever see that), subsequently minimising equipment downtime.
