For BOV, Generator, or other equipment. Lets explore. Non blended Gas has a shelf life of several years, especially if you add a fuel stabilizer, however Blended gas especially Ethanol based blends have a shelf life of months, and if contaminated with water days due to separation. Then there’s diesel, it has a shelf life of several years but it can grow contaminants. These can be removed by a technique called polishing. It is simple to do you just run it through a series of filters to remove the algae blooms. And shelf life can be extended by stirring it to keep it from separating. And a water separator to remove water. So they both have their pros and cons. So why chose one over the other? My reasoning is availability. There are far more commercial uses for diesel than gas. So it goes to reason, many commercial operations will have tanks of it on hand to serve their needs. The second consideration is you can supplement diesel with other oils and get a good result. Or blend in some used vegetable oil. No you don’t need fancy equipment to do a small blend like fifteen percent. Just filter it. You can use Kerosene, a common heating oil with a bit of motor oil mixed in for lubrication. And if you live by an airport and the SHTF you can always use Jet fuel from abandon airplanes in your diesel engine, if you add back a bit of lubrication. What are your thoughts? CTHorner.
