Fuel Manager Program
The Fuel Manager Program is a fuel quality enhancement program designed to grow residential customer loyalty to Heating Oil - as an industry in general and specifically to UltraGuard™ dealers. The object of this program is to reduce customer turnover, grow the number of customers and to increase margins.
The Fuel Manager Program works because of a quality assurance program that minimizes the incidence of customers out of heat as a result of fuel quality problems.
Today's highly efficient heating systems have no tolerance for particulate in the fuel, much like today's automobile fuel injection systems that have no tolerance for "dirt" in gasoline. The problem lies in the fact that today's refining procedures result in a fuel that generates more particulate than at any time in our history. The solution to these needs is fuel and tank maintenance following the Fuel Manager guidelines and using UltraGuard™ fuel additives.
The technical program is supported by cooperative advertising and the following:
Tank Cleaning Services
TANK PREP CHEMICAL TREATMENT Enhance tank cleaning prior to using ethanol blends, biodiesel and bioheat, and ULSD.
There are many fuel changes happening now and more planned in the near future. Most of these changes will benefit all of us in the long run. There are a few cost-effective steps that can be taken to minimize problems with ethanol blends, biodiesel blends and ULSD that will soon be delivered to tank storage systems.
Preventive maintenance is needed because tanks actually get used to what is stored in them. How can tanks get used to something? After all, aren't they inanimate objects? The answer lies in chemistry.
Tanks may be inanimate but they are not inactive. There is a whole lot of chemistry going on inside of both gasoline and diesel storage tanks:
The solutions are to use a chemical additive such as ILFC, Inc.'s #1032 Fuel Inhibitor that will disperse any organic resins into microscopic particle sizes that will not impact either the dispenser or vehicle fuel metering systems and to physically clean the storage systems. Another benefit of the additive package: corrosion inhibitors to protect the tank from the corrosive characteristics of the new fuels.
We recommend use of ILFC Inc.'s #1032 Fuel Inhibitor prior to your company's physical cleaning of a tank. This will enhance the removal of collected water and sediment by the pumping systems used because emulsions are broken and more of the resins will be readily removed. The separation of water from the fuel also reduces the volume of waste and increases he amount of resins and films removed.
Currently, Fuel Management Services, Inc. is working with a number of companies in providing tank prep chemical treatments to enhance tank cleaning with the "new" fuels. Please contact us for further information.
