Bulk Fuel Australia News

Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

Bulk Fuel Australia has built a reputation for supplying quality, reliable fuel to anywhere across the country, no matter how remote the location or arduous the trek. While most of the industries BFA are known for serving include construction, mining, rail or agriculture, it may interest you to know about how often that we get involved with sporting events.


Either way, there’s a lot more to consider when living off the grid than just installing some solar panels on the roof. Here are the vital ingredients to a working off-grid solution.


As bulk fuel specialists, we’re interested in all things “bulk” and all things “tankers”. That’s why a day like Bulk Tanker Day makes so much sense to us. The National Bulk Tanker Association is gearing up for another Bulk Tanker Day, which will be held on 30 August at the Sydney Motorsport Park, NSW.


Keeping businesses of all shapes and sizes running smoothly across Australia is only part of the job here at Bulk Fuel Australia. Another part is taking time to recognise the work our fantastic team do every day, and that’s where Photo of the Month comes in. It’s where BFA crew members can also play as shutterbug and show off some great photos.

While marine engines have become increasingly efficient over the past decade, there is still a lot we can do as end users to ensure that existing marine fuel supplies are used as frugally as possible. Not only does this make sense from an environmental point of view, but there are clear economic advantages to this, too.


We haven’t featured our marine refuelling capability in our Photo of the Month series for quite some time, so we thought it was time to show our marine customers some love. This month featured photo comes from the Gold Coast, where our client The Boat Works is based.


Did you know that many homes in Australia in south-east Queensland rely on home heating oil to warm their homes? Heating oil was extremely common in homes pre-1960 as a connection to the natural gas network wasn’t available at the time. While Australia isn’t known for being a “chilly” country, simply drive an hours in-land and you’ll be experiencing sub-zero temperatures during winter.


Several news stories came out in May 2018 across popular outlets, such as ABC, The Conversation and the Sydney Morning Herald, about the status of Australia’s fuel supply. “Are we running out of fuel?”, “Are we vulnerable to global disruption?” and “where does Australia’s diesel fuel come from?” were the top headlines.
