Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

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. 

 

Diesel bugs develop from fungal spores which travel by air or water and enter your fuel system through vents and filling ports. In the right conditions, diesel bugs are known to move in and start to multiply rapidly, which is why this microbe causes so many problems. At present, the current number of known species of diesel bugs sits at twenty.

 

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.  

 

What's the one thing that moves the fleet industry? Fleet fuel is what gets your drivers and goods from A to B. 

 

2016 was a big year for our Bulk Fuel Australia, with our main achievement the tackling of the fuel cleanliness issue by introducing Final Filters to our entire fleet of delivery trucks and bulk fuel site storage tanks. So what else did you love in 2016? Many of our articles attracted interest and stimulated discussion, but these 10 topped them all.
