Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilizer

Designing my new fuel system and realized I have a Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilizer, can't find much about it.
Gimmick or any good? And how would it be best used if any good?

No knowledge of this so I looked it up. The link shows it as a centrifuge.

https://www.dieselcraft.com/

Centrifuges for oil and /or diesel can do a good job as has been discussed here before.

However, for the majority of us who put on only up to 200 hr yearly they are not worth the investment unless you simply have to have one or in your case already have one.

Try contacting the company at the link above for specific info for setup and use.

Considering your question about polishing fuel check this thing out and use it if it is indeed a fuel centrifuge or find out if it can be adapted if it is for oil.

I can guess, pretty good idea, but better you contact the mfgr.

A photo may have helped.

Greetings,
From the Dieselcraft site:


"The base system consists of a hand truck frame holding a Dieselcraft Fuel Purifier, 400 GPH 120 volt pump and 10 micron filter with 20 feet of hose, a magnetic fuel conditioner, digital flow meter and a water alarm. One can add a digital timer if desired."


My bolding above. Magnetic fuel conditioner? If it is what I think it is, it's total BS and throws the whole company into question. Be VERY careful dealing with this firm!

Yeah I had a similar reaction on the "Magnetic fuel conditioner". I wish it was a centrifuge system! Thats on my list for oil at some point...

Did I misread? I though it was a centrifuge. The page I found showed it as such.

If it is a MAGNETIC doo dad then it is to be tossed. Sorry.

Greetings,
Mr. Ce. I copied and pasted directly from the site (my post #3). Bold for emphasis is MY addition, not the websites. Magic, pixie fairy dust...

I went back and I guess I did not read far enough. They were showing centrifuges, didn't realize they also sold those magnetic doo dads.

I am looking again though and I don't see the magnetic doodads.





Can you post a photo of the Dieselcraft unit you have?

Greetings,
Mr. Ce. I do not have a Dieselcraft unit. Just read over the site and it seemed legit until I came to the magnetic fuel conditioner being mentioned. AlgaeX claims to be able to magnetize fuel bugs to kill them. Same sort of bogus claim IMO.


Magnetism may well have some effect that I am unaware of but until I see and read scientific evidence from a bona fida fuel lab, call me a skeptic.
