Strengthen your emergency preparation through fuel testing and analysis, because the reliability of your generators, vehicles, and other equipment all depends on the quality of your fuel. High quality fuel is essential to keeping your equipment running during a mission critical event. Otherwise, emergency use may create business continuity issues. For this reason, we offer a range of testing services for gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, ethanol, and kerosene.

Methods and Benefits

When fuel leaves the refinery or pipeline, it meets a certain standard for cleanliness. This standard includes a maximum acceptable level of contaminants. However, in the process of transporting that fuel, cleanliness can easily be compromised, and every time a supply of fuel transfers between containers, the possibility for contamination increases. Fuel testing provides insight into the quality of your fuel over time.

Additionally, any fuel storage can also benefit from periodic testing. Fuel has a finite shelf life. Factors such as mold, condensation, sediment, and debris can all compromise fuel cleanliness. To ensure long-term quality, additives and stabilizers can be used to treat your fuel supply. Once we have assessed your usage requirements and performed an initial quality test, we can recommend the best products for your use.

We offer both one-off testing and long-term monitoring, giving you a full picture of the health of your fuel supplies. Furthermore, we recommend that you test any facility storing bulk or emergency fuel on a quarterly basis. Fuel testing identifies most potential problems that can cause premature wear or equipment failure. Trusting Foster Fuels to assist you in this critical process can save costs and ensure uptime in the event of a disaster.
