Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

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.

 

Reducing carbon emissions is a noble goal to help reduce the impact of climate change, and it’s one that needs the backing of scientific development and government support to make happen in an effective manner.

 

Our Photo of the Month is back! We love to highlight the fantastic work our team does around the country, refuelling trucks, fuel tanks, trains and more.

 

If you operate heavy duty diesel vehicle as part of a fleet, you’ve probably already heard of AdBlue. With emission standards tightening across the globe in a big to reduce pollution and meet climate agreements, AdBlue is being used as a way to reduce the emissions in your fuel by breaking down harmful nitrogen oxides.

 

Even with the cleanest of supplies, such as Final Filtered Diesel®, caution must still be taken to manage the risk that diesel exhaust represents.

 

At Bulk Fuel Australia, we’re committed to giving back to our community. We recognise the desperate need for urgent care and medical assistance to relieve additional stress from associated with transport to and from hospitals in South-East Queensland.

 

Our March Photo of the Month highlights the incredible size and scope of the projects we work on as part of our daily refuelling schedule. Here we have Bulk Fuel Australia tanker servicing a Chicago Freight Australia GL Class locomotive. With a live weight of 132 tonnes and a 12-cylinder GE engine producing 3300hp, these robust trains require Final Filtered Diesel® to operate efficiently.
