RE: Diesel Fuel

RickB you dont give up do you?***

Being I started using the low and ultra low diesel when they hit the on road pumps I asked and check boat sites/magazines and asked diesel mechanics.* In most of the diesel articles says that diesel start degrading in about 30 days, but they do not state how long. Might be advertising hype.**

It is my believe/understanding it has a short self live and should be turned/used at least once a year which is the reason I polish the fuel, use additives and use/turn the fuel.* Its worked for 10+ years!* Its best to be on the conservative side and take preventive action before a problem develops. If you have information other wise I would like to*hear about*that also.* * ***
