    Diesel is integral in the supply chain of any industry moving and transporting material.  However, if not properly taken care of, diesel fuel in winter weather can have some serious struggles.  One of the more common issues is an accumulation of deposits and gunk that clog up fuel lines, pumps, and injectors.  Learn why this is an issue and how the performance additives from Afton Chemical can help eliminate this issue.

Winter Weather Issues - Dirty Fuel Systems


It is inherent that an engine need fuel to flow to properly function.  Combustion is a powerful, and potentially incredibly dirty reaction when conditions are unfavorable.  Over time poor fuel quality and low maintenance intervals can lead to deposit buildup in fuel system components. 

A buildup in fuel lines and pumps can inhibit adequate flow, leading to inconsistent power generated and can make the truck feel like it is sluggish.  On top of this reduction in engine power comes a resulting increase in emissions generated from incomplete firing.  Similarly, this deposit build-up can occur in the fuel injector nozzles and causes non-ideal spray patterns and wasted fuel.

The images below detail the deposit build up over time for fuel injectors and oil pump strainers in comparison to their proper, cleaned condition.
