Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

To mark the New Year, our January photo of the month features truck photography courtesy of our friends at Tieman Tankers who recently delivered two brand new 25KL diesel tankers, complete with our new Final Filtered Diesel ®branding.


“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” - and this well-used expression is particularly true when it comes to fuel. An effective fuel management system (FMS) can make a big difference to the bottom line, the question is: what’s the best way to measure your fuel consumption?


One of the key industries Bulk Fuel Australia serves is power generation. From fuelling emergency back-up generators to mobile food markets and major events, our on-site refuelling fleet is on-hand to supply generator fuel for power generation that ensures uninterrupted power supply – at any location.  


This month, our December photo of the month is a bit different. Instead of our usual truck photography, taken of one of our mini-tankers on site, usually in a rugged, remote or complex re-fuelling area, we’re featuring our BFA bulk fuel delivery vehicle at the premises of our Final Filtered Diesel® filtration partner HYDAC, in Banyo, Queensland to participate in their filtration tests.


The decision to provide our customers with superior Final Filtered Diesel® meant we needed to find a partner as committed to quality fuel and customer service as we are. Following an extensive process, German company HYDAC was selected as having a superior diesel filtration unit, designed using the latest innovations in element technology. 


A key part of Bulk Fuel Australia’s success in the on-site refuelling market is due to our tough, reliable fleet of DAF minitankers. A bulk fuel mini tanker can access the rugged, remote and access-restricted sites traditional fuel tankers can’t get to, so they can safely and efficiently refuel plant and equipment at your location, anywhere in Australia.


Bulk Fuel Australia is proud to be a sponsor of one of the country’s oldest forms of speedway racing, Compact Speedcars. Originally referred to as TQs (Three Quarter Midgets) way back when the speedway racing scene started gaining traction around Australia, they then became known as Junior Speedcars before their evolution to what we know today as Compact Speedcars. There are now Australian Championship race meetings for Compact Speedcars up and down the eastern seaboard of Australia.


Our friends at Bay and River Cruises in Melbourne managed to catch a quick Bulk Fuel Australia marine refuel in action at the Federation Square wharf recently. Our on-site refuelling services aren’t limited to land, with our go-anywhere DAF minitankers able to navigate busy city locations such as the Yarra riverside much more easily than a full-sized fuel tanker.


You can have the most fuel efficient engine, the highest quality fuel and travel the best highways in the world but there is still one major factor to consider if you’re trying to achieve maximum fuel efficiency – the driver. The Volvo Drivers’ Fuel Challenge competition aims to find the most fuel efficient driver of its FH truck. This year, the winner was Tomáš Horčička from the Czech Republic.


Major sporting events and music festivals have reached a size and level of sophistication where the power required is equal to that of a small town – which in reality is exactly what these temporary mega-events are, complete with a variety of food vendors, showers, toilets, campgrounds, VIP areas, pit lanes, lighting and sound systems.
