ROAD transport is Australia’s lifeline

If you’re a transport operator you’ll know it’s critical to minimise downtime and maximise performance for every vehicle, meeting time-critical deadlines efficiently and consistently.

The average big rig costs close to $200,000 a year to run, of which about two thirds are vehicle costs.

With the average diesel engine costing about $8000 to overhaul, preventative maintenance and keeping your fuel lines clean is critical.

Poorly maintained diesel fuel is responsible for about 80 per cent of engine failures in the transportation industry.

That’s why in time critical situations, it’s important to know your business is using optimum fuel storage techniques to keep your vehicles on time and on the road.

Common problems caused by poor fuel quality

New common rail 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:

Poor starting or failure to start

Reduced availability

Poor or rough idle, reducing efficiency

Increased consumption

Excessive smoke and emissions

Tank integrity – keeping fuel contained

Our industry experts have the knowledge to help you make the most of the fuel that keeps your business running, using the latest in storage and stabilising products and integrated fuel management systems.

Our solutions for the transport industry include:

Water-finding paste to help you check fuel regularly and drain off water, keeping fuel stable and increasing storage life

Biocide for diesel fuel to prevent the growth of diesel bugs and keep your fuel and your vehicles safe

Fuel management systems to monitor storage levels, fuel usage and fuel efficiency

A full range of fuel storage options including our unbeatable, fully-certified self-bunded 'Drag and Drop' tanks designed for easy access and maintenance.

Fuel Prices

Are you buying your fuel at the best price available to you?

Not so long ago, the high price of fuel at the pump was crippling the haulage industry.

With retail fuel margins now at their highest in years, the opportunity to save by purchasing bulk fuel is too great an opportunity to miss….

Additional government incentives have also enabled the purchase of equipment to be easier with greater tax breaks for the business.

New tax savings and the saving on buying fuel in bulk can be offset against a self bunded storage tank and fuel management system.
