Fuel System Contaminants: An Introduction


The relative decline of distillate fuel quality in the United States over the past several years has been discussed in many recent publications [16]. This decline has taken the form of lower cetane numbers, heavier fuels, poorer stability characteristics, and poorer cold weather characteristics [7]. These factors combined with increasing demands made by economical realities, environmental concerns and equipment refinements, have placed a heavy burden on both the suppliers and users of fuel.
