What is the minimum to do to?

It has been determined by the 28 day, stored diesel fuel begins to become contaminated and start to degrade. Diesel fuel can only be stored from 6 to 12 months and not expect some sort of effects of bad fuel if you do nothing.

Many companies suggest to effect the life of the of stored diesel fuel, it should be:
Kept cool at around 70 degrees Fahrenheit;
Treated with biocides and stabilizers
Maintained properly in accordance with NFPA 110

NFPA 110 refers to diesel “Storage Life,” 1.5 to 2 years. The Standard recommends that, “Tanks should be sized so that the fuel is consumed within the storage life, or provision should be made to replace stale fuel with fresh fuel,” NFPA 110, A-5-9

Some of the above suggestion may not be possible without great effort and cost. So at the bare minimum do one thing… KEEP THE WATER OUT.

Trust me water is going to magically appear in the fuel and water is the number one killer of the engine and the start of problems.

No water means no bacteria and no biocide.

Regular “Fuel Polishing“ is the best but not the least expensive option.

How much fuel do you have, 200 gallons or 5,000 gallons?

Do the math and decide if contracting with a service or buying a machine makes best sense.

Mean while here is the quickest and simplest little device to get the water out.
