Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

At Bulk Fuel Australia we’re not just about ensuring your business has a reliable supply of quality fuel for your residence or work site, we’re also budding photographers. Every month we celebrate the best photo taken by one of our team members on the job around the country, showcasing the many varied locations our fuel delivery trucks go.


Bulk Fuel Australia has built a reputation for supplying quality, reliable fuel to anywhere across the country, no matter how remote the location or arduous the trek. While most of the industries BFA are known for serving include construction, mining, rail or agriculture, it may interest you to know about how often that we get involved with sporting events.


There are many reasons why people are seeking alternative power supply solutions these days. Some people are living in places where existing infrastructure isn’t up to the task of supplying a reliable source of energy to the home. Others are eschewing the conventional power supply offerings and choosing the more environmental route of using renewable sources of energy balanced with diesel power generators.


As bulk fuel specialists, we’re interested in all things “bulk” and all things “tankers”. That’s why a day like Bulk Tanker Day makes so much sense to us. The National Bulk Tanker Association is gearing up for another Bulk Tanker Day, which will be held on 30 August at the Sydney Motorsport Park, NSW.


Keeping businesses of all shapes and sizes running smoothly across Australia is only part of the job here at Bulk Fuel Australia. Another part is taking time to recognise the work our fantastic team do every day, and that’s where Photo of the Month comes in. It’s where BFA crew members can also play as shutterbug and show off some great photos.


Tax time is here again and while we’re looking around for every discarded receipt and long-forgotten invoice to complete our paperwork, it’s worth looking back at the history of fuel taxation in Australia. Fuel is a commodity that has been taxed in varying degrees since Federation, and each successive government has made changes and updates to taxation law that impact how we purchase and use fuel today.


The Rockefeller name is deeply entrenched in American history, synonymous with summits of wealth and philanthropic generosity. You’d be hard fetched to find someone who hasn’t heard of the name or the family legacy. It all began, however, with the 16-year-old bookkeeper, John D. Rockefeller, whose goal in life was to earn $100,000 and live to be 100 years.


While marine engines have become increasingly efficient over the past decade, there is still a lot we can do as end users to ensure that existing marine fuel supplies are used as frugally as possible. Not only does this make sense from an environmental point of view, but there are clear economic advantages to this, too.


We haven’t featured our marine refuelling capability in our Photo of the Month series for quite some time, so we thought it was time to show our marine customers some love. This month featured photo comes from the Gold Coast, where our client The Boat Works is based.


Did you know that many homes in Australia in south-east Queensland rely on home heating oil to warm their homes? Heating oil was extremely common in homes pre-1960 as a connection to the natural gas network wasn’t available at the time. While Australia isn’t known for being a “chilly” country, simply drive an hours in-land and you’ll be experiencing sub-zero temperatures during winter.
