Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

Since the invention of diesel fuel in the 1800s, scientists and fuel industry members have all been looking to improve the performance and reliability of the substance. New developments continue to change the way diesel fuel is sourced and used.

 

2018 saw the team at Bulk Fuel Australia go above and beyond to serve Australia’s largest projects and events, from the Sunshine Coast Airport Construction to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

 

To keep people from accidentally filling a diesel engine with petroleum, a vehicle comes with a warning label “Diesel Fuel Only.” Despite this, misfuelling a vehicle occurs more often than one would think! The RAA reported 7,500 misfuelling events of people putting petrol into a diesel car per year, costing Australians up to $10 million annually.

 

Every single day the Bulk Fuel Australia team can be found all around the country, helping keep businesses of all shapes and sizes operating smoothly. There’s no limit to the types of locations our range of refuelling vehicles can get to, and occasionally they find themselves in the most picturesque of places. Every month we put the spotlight one an image taken by a team member while on the job.

 

Australian fuel prices have hit their highest in a decade. The 20-cent average hike across the country stems from high global prices and a weak Australian dollar. Not much can be done about this according to analysts at the ACCC who say that unless the big oil companies are split, making them more competitive – which, they note, comes with its own array of problems.

 

Could solar-powered thermal fuel be the future for powering our homes, devices and vehicles? Scientists have been looking for a way to do just that, and now a team of researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden are reportedly making significant progress.

 

Running out of fuel at an inopportune moment can happen to even the best organisations. We all know someone with a personal horror story about the fuel tank running dry on a long and lonely highway, but spare a thought for the team at NASA who have just had a similar experience, on a much larger scale.

 

At Bulk Fuel Australia, our commitment to serving the community extends well beyond the commercial aspect of delivering quality diesel fuel all around the country. In addition to taking care of the safety and performance of our people, we are also proud sponsors of the Central Queensland branch of The Australian Stock Horse Society.

 

At Bulk Fuel Australia we love talking about the wide range of customers that we service all around the country, but why talk when a picture says a thousand words? That’s where our Photo of the Month comes in. Every month we showcase a picture taken by a member of our bulk fuel delivery crew of our reliable diesel fuel supply hardware helping keep our clients running smoothly.

 

Every day we see a plethora of advertisements and warnings about road and pedestrian safety. There are billboards, advertising campaigns and daily reminders on the news about how dangerous our daily commutes can be, but we also need to be vigilant about safety in the workplace. This is the focus of Safe Work Australia’s National Safe Work Month.
