Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

Buying and storing fuel is one of the biggest expenses for farms, with some farmers spending six-figure sums annually on fuel alone. Luckily, thanks new storage technologies and government incentives, there are ways to cut down on your long-term fuel expenditures.  If you’re looking to upgrade your farm fuel tank, here are the benefits and drawbacks to the three common types of fuel storage.


Fuel is one of the largest expenses for businesses, especially for those who utilise fleet vehicles. According to a recent study from CANSTAR, the rising price of fuel is a major concern with 78% of small business owners claiming they closely monitor the cost of fuel, and their use of it, in order to reduce costs. Small businesses are currently spending $1,088 on fuel every month, with the cost escalating dramatically for those who rely on transportation.


Welcome again to the Photo of the Month. Each month our team on the road send throgh photos of everything from construction site refuelling to big truck photography. We then need to make the hard call on whose photo is best.


Speeding is one of the biggest causes of crashes on our Australian roads. The need for speed to get to our destination quicker is causing too many near misses, prangs, and at the worst, fatalities. The UN Road Safety Week 2017, spanning 8-14th of May 2017, is encouraging all road users to #slowdown and we couldn’t agree more.


Each and every month, the team at Bulk Fuel Australia hold a Photo of the Month competition to share and celebrate our clients and staff working hard across the country.


The ISO 4406 Cleanliness Codes are national standards that provide guidelines for the level of diesel cleanliness that must be maintained in vehicles, equipment and machinery to limit emissions. There are three different sets of ranges: ISO 22/21/18.


As vehicles and farm machinery have evolved, it's now become a necessity to use a higher grade of fuel. One of the key factors in this transition is the introduction of the common diesel engine. 


Even if you use the highest grade of fuel for your vehicle or machinery, this doesn't ensure that your fuel won't become contaminated over time. When air builds up in your fuel tank as a by product of air forming when fuel is used, condensation occurs causing water to build up. Unfortunately, the interface between the fuel and water provides the perfect living conditions for microbes known as diesel bugs.


The capability of Bulk Fuel Australia’s fuel tanks can grow along with our customers business, as evidenced by this recent installation. Graymore Couriers has been one of our clients for over three years, and we have seen their fuel needs outgrow the capabilities of the 10,000 litre fuel tank that was installed previously.


As a leading Australian bulk fuel provider, one of the most frequent questions we are asked, both by current and potential customers, is what range of factors affect heating oil prices.  

An obvious starting point is the fact that this is largely a seasonal product, as becomes clear as April approaches and cold nights can settle across places such as Toowoomba and Canberra, Geelong, The Blue Mountains or perhaps just where you live.
