Date: December 01, 2021 PDF: 7 MB

The Fuels Institute’s Diesel Fuel Quality Council commissioned a fuel quality study to better understand the condition of diesel fuel sold and consumed in the U.S., and specifically, to evaluate diesel fuel for specific properties that may affect engine operations and/or contribute to tank corrosion and product contamination. The Council collected 190 nozzle samples and 134 tank samples from around the country and conducted 11 tests on every nozzle sample, six tests on every middle tank sample and five tests on every bottom tank sample. The report summarizes the findings of these tests in comparison to selected comparable benchmarks and evaluates the existence of any correlation between variables.
