Fuel Saving Tips

Keep that diesel fuel tank full

Diesel fuel is highly hygroscopic. That means it sucks moisture and water out of the air, on a daily adiabatic cycle. The more air stored in the fuel tank, the more moisture is drawn into the fuel tank, condensing on the inside walls of the fuel tank, as the tank breathes in and out with the daily heat cycle. Keeping your diesel fuel tank fuel limits the amount of moist air drawn into your fuel tank, and into your fuel during humid seasons. This is less a problem in the arid SouthWest seasons with relative humidity below 20%
