The Cost of Maintaining Trucking Fleets
The average big rig costs close to $200,000 a year to run, of which about two thirds is vehicle costs.
With the average diesel engine overhaul setting you back about $8000, preventative maintenance and keeping your fuel lines clean in your trucking fleet is critical.
Poorly managed diesel fuel is responsible for about 80 per cent of engine failures in the transport industry, and in a time critical environment these failures can cost a business much more than the price of engine repairs.
Diesel fuel contaminants can cause serious problems for your fleet and machinery, affecting engine components with issues like clogged intake valves, premature wear and tear on engine components, reduced air flow and reduced engine power and performance.
In a time-critical environment, that can have serious flow-on effects for on-time delivery and far-reaching effects for your business.
The best way to ensure a diesel engine’s premium performance is to ensure a clean and reliable fuel supply.

Protecting Your Investment – Keeping Fuel Safe
New diesel engines are achieving ever better efficiency and performance, but it’s important to remember they also require better quality fuel.
Particulate contamination, water and diesel bugs are all common problems that affect fuel quality and cause critical issues for transport operators.
Diesel bugs grow best in the interface between water and fuel and can spread rapidly, spreading particulates in the fuel and generating corrosive by-products that can cause severe damage to tanks and engines.
Diesel destabilised by any of these factors will spoil quickly, and can cause problems including:
If you’re in the transport industry, you’ll likely have a steady fuel turnover and your tanks will be filled regularly. It’s worth talking to an expert to determine what tank size will suit you best – don’t just go with what you’ve had in the past. Keeping your tanks at the optimum level will help minimise reactions with air and water.
