Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

Willie Nelson, country music singer-songwriter legend, is known for many things. There’s his incredibly prolific music career, his distinct voice and look, his civil rights advocacy...and oddly enough, his biofuel company.

 

It’s that time again. Our Photo of the Month is the time where we show off a happy snap from our team on the road as they deliver on-site fuel to customers across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

 

Australia’s fuel refineries play a major role in the fuel supply chain, producing half of the transport fuels needed to operate vehicles and machinery every day.

 

Having your own fuel storage tanks on-site has a wealth of advantages. Primarily, it gives you the purchasing power of being able to buy bulk fuel allotments. This lets you store fuel in a place of your choice and buy fuel at a competitive price. It is also extremely convenient as you aren’t continually waiting for new fuel supply trucks to arrive. 

 

Welcome to our August BFA Photo of the Month, where we showcase a fuel solution project we’ve worked on. This month we’re highlighting our fuel tanks and fuel management system with this great photo of our fuel tank sitting pretty amongst the earthmoving equipment at a construction site.

 

A Queensland oil refinery believes they’ve found a solution for Australia’s tyre waste and fuel scarcity issues that will benefit us all.

 

We hear the terms ‘flammable’ and ‘combustible’ thrown around every day, and often used interchangeably. However, there are key differences between the two, and understanding them can be of great benefit. 

 

Welcome to June’s Photo of the Month at Bulk Fuel Australia. Every month we showcase a fuelling solution project we’re particularly proud of. Previously we’ve highlighted our event experience with diesel fuel delivery at the Woodford Folk Festival, how we refuel fleet equipment at Australia’s largest coal port and how we navigate a hub of activity at the Kingsford Smith Drive Upgrade.

 

The current Australian Fuel Standards are about to be revoked, with a 2019 updated version of the Standard to be introduced into law on 1 October.

So, has anything changed for cleaner diesel and petrol? Not yet…

 

In a country like Australia with such harsh conditions, keeping anything outside for extended periods of time poses unique challenges. The weather alternates from extreme heat to frosty snow which are both toxic to machinery, plant life is abundant and can interfere with sensitive equipment, and even the animals are known to knock things over when nobody’s looking.
