How To Manage The Fuel Of Diesel Generator Set

Sep. 03, 2021

Diesel is an indispensable fuel for generators. From the perspective of cost-effectiveness and combustion efficiency, the price of diesel is slightly higher than that of gasoline. However, its high energy density makes it a well-deserved popular choice for generator owners. This means that more energy is extracted from systems that run on diesel fuel compared to other types of generators. In view of the fuel efficiency of diesel, engines and portable generator sets choose it as the obvious and more efficient choice. Compared with gasoline, diesel is oilier and heavier. In addition, it has a higher boiling point than water.


So, for diesel generators, how to manage diesel fuel? Why manage fuel? Next, Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. will work with you to study the key points of successful diesel fuel management.


1. Outsourcing process.

Although for some facilities, this may be a greater cost and a less-than-ideal option. However, the outsourcing company removes time constraints for you and ensures better results. The outsourcing company will handle all aspects of the process for you and also support various processes, including everything from sampling diesel fuel to controlling water, oxygen, and microbiological risks. They can provide continuous support for your system. The practicality of these systems makes them so important to most organizations.


2. Use diesel fuel management system.

The second option provides a balance between manual labor and outsourcing. You can use the diesel fuel management system to automate most of your work on a remote basis. It can check the fuel for you from time to time. It can provide you with real-time updates on fuel quality at any given time. All this is managed through a web application. If there is any sign of fuel quality degradation, the sensor will detect this and send you an alert to quickly determine a solution. It can monitor water pollution, fuel levels, temperature changes, fuel theft, and more.

3. DIY practical skills.

These skills are self-made and are maintained internally. See the tips below:

(1)Keep dry and clean the fuel tank filling area.

(2)Do not rely on the automatic water tank metering device to confirm the water level at the bottom of the water tank.

(3)Make sure to use storage tanks that meet the standards. A fuel tank that meets these standards will greatly help protect diesel from disease.

(4)Ensure that all tank openings are tightly sealed to prevent contaminants from entering the tank.

(5)Keep all storage tanks full to minimize the amount of oxygen and water condensation.

(6)Keep the system as "water-free" as much as possible, and pump water regularly to reduce it as much as possible.

(7)Check that all fuel tanks are properly ventilated, but the vent cap itself is kept in good condition.

(8)You need to test for microbial activity. If it does, take steps to correct the problem.


4.When you use clean diesel to run a backup generator, you have the following advantages:

(1)Lubricate and clean the injection system.

(2)The chance of fuel injector failure will be reduced.

(3)It helps reduce maintenance costs.

(4)Sludge accumulation is no longer a problem.

(5)Diesel backup generators will run with less smoke.

(6)Provide more reliable fuel for power outages or emergencies.


Whether your business is a data center, hospital, manufacturing plant, grocery store, oil well, food processing company, or any other type of facility. Standby generators are essential to maintain planned operation and full power operation under all conditions. Backup power allows companies to maintain power in the event of a power outage, power failure, or any other type of emergency that causes a power outage.


Diesel generators are designed to start running immediately with very few interruptions so that electricity can be restored normally. Therefore, diesel generators are one of the most reliable emergency backup power sources.
