NE1 centrifuge diesel #2

Just wondering how dirty the diesel #2 is.

Seen lots of people concerned about how clean to make the WVO. What happens when you centrifuge diesel? Are you cleaning the WVO much more than the diesel is?

Does the centrifuge filter out suspended water?

Thanks

This site is great.

Thats a good Q that I would like to test, but I cant afford to buy 55 of diesel to try it out.

I spent way to much on fireworks

this question came up a few months ago. i dont recall if anyone spun any or not. but a few years ago i read a report from the EPA or someone about diesel fuel regulations. basically it says that they are required to have a minimum 30 micron filter at the pump. that was back in 07 or 08. there are regualtions on fuel quality in their underground tanks, but i dont know what they are and i have a feeling that a lot of fueling stations dont control it. i know a lot of non-corporate chain stations that sell unleaded fail when inspected.

I've heard of some of the new trucks voiding warranty because of water in fuel. apparently the fuel is not all that good in the first place?

Im not sure on diesel tanks but im sure its the same as vehicle gasoline tanks get mositure in them and then condense in the winter.

My wife had a jeep that sat for 10 years. I dropped the tank and it had 1.5 galons of water in the tank.

Thats why HEET flys off the shelves in the winter

the fuel should be good in the tanker and leaving the tanker. but theres no guarantee that what the fuel coming from the tank in the ground is good or not. depends on the fuel station. some rural ones have a lot of water or contamination.


(justin m) here filled up one day and messed up his injectors. either there was water or gas in that fuel tank mixed with diesel.

The answer is yes, when you CF your oil, it is cleaner that diesel will be.

I always get diesel at truck stops. They move a ton of fuel so it does not have a chance to sit around long. I just happen to have 3 truck stops at my exit so finding one is pretty easy for me. I have a buddy with a dmax who buys the cheapest stuff he can find and twice his trucked choked and died on the way out of the cheap-o gas station. I know my 7.3 is much less picky vs the dmax, but that was enough to prove to me that elcheapo diesel is not as good as you would think.
