San Diego Ship Repair Expert Advice: How to Prevent Fuel Contamination

Just like humans, marine diesel engines become very susceptible to various issues at later ages. The most common issues the clients at our San Diego ship repair facility complain about come from using bad fuel. This is especially true for first-time boat owners who are unfamiliar with fuel contamination issues like the diesel bug and how they can impact the marine diesel engines.

You have to know that you have to pay attention to the fuel system maintenance throughout the year, not just during the sailing season. The same goes for when your boat is stored during the winter. There are many additives on the market claiming they can maintain the stability in both diesel fuel and gasoline during the period your boat is stored away unused. However, you also have to be careful where you buy the fuel. Fuel docks usually have pre-filters that prevent dangerous contaminants from wreaking havoc in your engine. But don’t rely too heavily on them.
