Hi Jim - Actually I do not.

I'm pretty good at photos. Have wondered a bit about a file - pdf.

Best luck.

Let us all know if you break the code!

Cheers... Art

Do it the same as for photos.

ie use 'Go Advanced', click the paperclip, browse for your file from the popup window then click upload in that window

Diesel fuel operability issues - Condensed

Thanks Brian. I hope this worked. If it attached here, this is a brief I have sent to my fuel distributor customers as reminders. A lot more detail is available, but likely unnecessary. There is some mention of Schaeffer, but any truly good additives can work, only not all are truly good. The part on Cold weather/gelling is moot, but the other factors apply in marine ops.

Diesel fuel operability issues - Condensed

I tried again here, on the attachment.

This is a brief I have sent to my fuel distributor customers. Winter gelling is not applicable, but the rest is. Any really good additive can work. The work is finding a really good one sometimes.

Moisture is present in every gallon of diesel - everywhere. Some more than others, and it can be controlled with additives meant for the job.

Thanks, Jim - Now I know a bit more... Art

Great article Jim. I agree that moisture will collect in any diesel fuel tank if no controls are in place.
Additives are one type of control. Fuel polishing is another way. A good fuel tank design with a sump & drain is a third option.
