What’s Hiding in Your Tank

Fuel quality can be a key indicator of the overall health of your system. With today’s advanced Tier 3 and Tier 4 compliant engines, the cleanliness of your fuel is more important than ever. Poor fuel quality can affect how your equipment performs – including abnormal wear of components, valves, valve guides, piston rings, and more. In addition, water and contaminants can destroy injectors and other components with fine tolerances.  

So the question remains, what contaminants are hiding in your tank? Carter’s variety of testing packages for both diesel and bio-blend fuels offer a cost effective way to assess the current condition of your fuel. Whether you require a basic test or a comprehensive report that meets governmental regulations, we have you covered. In addition to accurate reporting, our team provides actionable, expert analysis that you can count on.
