Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

There aren’t that many technologies initially developed in the late 1800’s that are still going strong today, but diesel fuel has to rank as one of the most successful.

 

January 2019’s photo of the month is a little bit different from the other entries in the series. By now we are sure you’re familiar with Bulk Fuel Australia’s proven ability to deliver a dependable supply of diesel fuel to worksites, cars and trucks - but this is a vehicle with more wheels than most.

 

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.
