Gasoline coming out from the refinery is usually clean. Before getting to the gas station however, it has been transferred through a complex network of wagons, trucks and storage tanks where contaminants took advantage of adverse conditions such as bad weather, poorly cleaned hoses, damaged caps, seals and gaskets or insufficient handling precautions to make their way to your fuel.
In these conditions, even the most reputable suppliers can’t guarantee that the fuel they just delivered to your station is 100% contaminant free, therefore, you should consider testing your gasoline after each delivery.
Fuel Compliance Testing
- Testing your gasoline before using or selling it is a low-cost proof of compliance with the Government laws and regulations.
- At Tribologik, we provide the full range of automotive gasoline tests to assess quality and compliance with the North American regulations and standards, including Research Octane Number (ASTM D2699), Motor Octane Number (ASTM D2700), Anti-Knock Index, Vapour Pressure, etc.
- Water, sediments and other contaminants such as left overs at the bottom of the tank, hot weather condensation and winter time formation of ice crystals are major sources of fuel contamination.
- Tribologik provides all standard tests to detecte for these other contaminants as a precaution against engine failure and breakdown.
