Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

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. 


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 tankers 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.


The high risks associated with a sustained, widespread power outage means back-up power sources must be reliable, powerful and available immediately. That’s why emergency backup generators are powered by diesel fuel.


Rail transport is one of the most energy efficient modes of transport, contributing less than three percent of Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions – and according to the Australian Rail Association, that includes passenger and freight trains. So how have trains managed to reduce emissions more than their road transport counterparts?


Our September photo of the month competition saw a strong field of competitors from our team, but there can only be one winner and that winner is David Browne with this great truck photography shot of one of our tankers conquering some challenging terrain to refuel plant and machinery at the Eton Range project in Central Queensland.


For over a decade, governments around the world have pushed the transport industry towards using cleaner diesel fuel that produces fewer emissions. In a relatively short time, trucks and heavy vehicles have transitioned from black smoke and fume belching beasts into some of the most fuel efficient vehicles on the Australian road network.


The terminology around fuel and fuel pricing can be confusing. Terms such as West Texas Crude, Biodiesel, LPG and LNG are frequently used, but are they all names for the same thing? The short answer is ‘yes’. The long answer is that while all these terms refer to fuel, their small differences make a big difference to how and why these fuels are used.
