Premium diesel: What is the difference?
Tractors, trucks and all diesel powered equipment have dramatically changed over the last few decades. Due to the advancement of technologies and the increasing restrictions on emissions from our government, engines have been forced to meet strict emission and efficiency standards. These engines demand premium diesel due to the many benefits it provides. Premium diesel will help clean and prevent injector fouling in all engines, and this is especially important in systems that are 2007 and newer. Minimizing deposits on injectors is crucial with high-pressure injection engines. This is critical to reduce costly downtime and repairs on your equipment.
Premium diesel will still bring many benefits to your diesel engine even if you are not running newer equipment. You may notice up to a 5 percent increase in fuel economy, a 4.5 percent increase in power, quicker equipment starts, and a more lubricated system that will extend the life of your engine. Premium diesel also contains a demulsifier that pushes any unwanted water in the tank to the bottom, keeping it out of your engine. The storage life of the premium diesel is also increased by six months.
All of these features make an operation more successful. Less down time, lower fuel costs, more power, and being able to focus on the money-making aspects of your operation means a better bottom line. Call 608-819-3140 to learn more.
