Give them the tools to do the job.
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Most engine failures begin with the fuel in your tank. Fuel problems will cause engine smoke, the loss of power, carbon buildup and eventually premature engine failure. This is why you need a Pre-filter Fuel Decontamination System to protect your entire fuel system including tank. Bright clear, clean fuel is what your engine manufacturer specified. How does your fuel look?
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Diesel Fuels are inherently unstable. You may have contaminates and may not even realise it. Diesel fuel contamination problems have two different areas to consider chemistry and biology. According to the Institute of Diesel and Gas Engineers over 50% of engine breakdowns are fuel related. Fuel filters that do not last over 500 hours are an indication of fuel problems.
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group The chemistry side is “asphaltenes“ “asphaltenes" commonly called diesel sludge is the most common chemical problem and the most mis-diagnosed problem in diesel fuel. Asphaltenes are brown and slimy and resemble algae. BUT asphaltenes are not algae, Algae feeds on sunlight. The natural chemical process that goes on in diesel fuel as it ages creates asphaltenes. The asphaltene molecules will tend to precipitate out of the fuel over time and settle on the bottom of the tank. Once picked up by the fuel pump filters clog and engines stop. Chemical Contaminates
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group The biology side is "Fuel Bugs“ "Fuel Bugs" also known as bacteria and fungus, primarily Cyanobacteria, in diesel fuel are the other problem but less prominent than asphaltenes. Most diesel users have very little knowledge of this costly problem. There are over 100 types of Fuel Bugs that can live in diesel fuel. Fuel Bugs feed on the oil in the fuel and use the water in the fuel for their oxygen supply. They grow in your fuel at different rates and can easily cost thousands of Pounds in damage to each contaminated vehicle or boat. It is imperative to determine if a fuel problem is biological or chemical based. Biological Contaminates
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group FACT: ALL fuel producers admit that diesel fuel is inherently unstable. This instability causes diesel fuels to form sludge and or insoluble organic particulates. Both asphaltene compounds (sludge) and particulates may contribute to build up in injectors and particulates can clog fuel filters plus add to the service issues common to diesel engines. FACT: Carbon deposits reduce fuel economy and increase wear on your engine. Stable and cleaner fuel will eliminate carbon deposits, fouled filters and smoke plus give you more power and better mileage from every gallon of fuel. FACT: Tanks are almost never drained completely so the remaining fuel in your tank contaminates new or added fuel the moment they are mixed. The Facts on the matter
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Problems created by deteriorating Diesel Fuels: Particle Clogged Filters Frequent changing is needed – the replacement costs rise Fuel Efficiency problems Combustibility becomes more difficult resulting in the burning of more fuel for the same results Excessive Smoke Inefficient burning of broken down particles – partially burned fuels Corrosive Wear Extensive wear can cause equipment shutdown or destruction with expensive repair costs
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group The solution lies in transforming the fuel. By using a Dieselcraft System you will get: Increased Power Decreased Smoke Reduced Maintenance Costs Reduced Clogged Fuel Filters and Injectors The Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilisers use multiple magnetic fields to stabilise the molecular structure just prior to combustion, giving more power, enhanced combustion, fuel economy and maintenance savings. In a Dieselcraft Fuel Stabiliser the fuel comes in direct contact with the twin multi-polar magnet assembly. This contact will alter the state of the hydrogen atoms in the aliphatic hydrocarbons. Non-Additive Fuel Technology works like an induction motor and induces a small electric charge into the fuel, it will not form clumps and it will not support bacteria, mould or “algae”. It will burn cleaner and more completely.
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Stage 1 Stage 2 Diesel Fuel Purification Systems A two-stage fuel treatment system to clean and stabilise your fuel Your permanent fuel quality solution to reduce or remove engine problems that are fuel related. Stage 2: The Stabiliser These multiple Strontium Ferrite "Fuel Stabilisers" will decontaminate and stabilise the diesel fuel without the use of chemical additives. PERMANENTLY! Stable fuel will: o Reduce carbon buildup on pistons. o Extend engine life by reducing abrasives that wear out engine parts before their time. o Kill bacteria and mould that commonly grow in diesel fuel. Stage 1: The Separator This high-speed centrifuge separator removes 99.9% of the water and 95% of the solid contaminants in your fuel. No filters to change and requires no maintenance. Clean fuel will: o Extend engine life o Increase performance o Save you money by reducing maintenance costs

Step 1: Fuel from the fuel tank enters the separator Step 2: Fuel runs down the down pipe and into the centrifugal chamber where the water particles are separated from the fuel Step 3: Particulate is separated out through the Bifurcating Plates and disposed of with the separated water particles Step 4: Fuel returns into the system clean Click to view steps Dieselcraft Separator
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Fuels are organic, and naturally degrade over time. This degradation, oxidation, and re-polymerization can start in as little as 30 days after the fuel is refined. The by-product of this process becomes sludge, acids, and bacteria which is now present in your fuel tank. Only Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilisers can reset the clock on fuel instability and breakdown to keep it fresh and contaminant free. Dieselcraft will restore fuel to its refined state and ASTM specifications. Some engines return up to 80% of the fuel pumped back to the tank. This recirculating of the fuel is what allows Dieselcraft to induce a small electric charge into the fuel repeatedly. This continual pre-filter induction and polishing of the fuel by Dieselcraft stabilisers is what keeps it stable, sludge bacteria and acid free and your tanks clean. Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilisers are easily installed, have no moving parts, and require no electrical connections. They require no maintenance. In most cases installation takes less than 30 minutes. Stage 2: Rejuvenation Dieselcraft Stabilisers

In most cases a simple splice into the fuel line or direct connect to the fuel filter can be achieved. All Dieselcraft units come with a universal mounting bracket and instructions. Install it and forget about it. It works as you run the engine. No maintenance required Simple Installation
All material was provided by John Nightingale of Dieselcraft Fuel Engineering / The Magnum Group Detect "Fuel Bugs", bacteria, fungus and mould in diesel fuel Steps 1-2 Steps 3-5 Sample Identification of contamination 1. Simply remove the slide form the tube. DO NOT touch the slide surface. The slide will detect bacteria on you fingers. 2. Dip the slid into the fuel for 15 seconds.(Take a fuel sample form the fuel filter or water separator) 3. Remove the excess fuel. And then put the slide back into the tube. 4. Put the tube in a desk drawer, any dark location, for 24 hours. 5. Inspect the tube at 24 hours, 36 hours and 48 hours. Any reaction requires immediate action on your part. Add a BIOCIDE to the fuel to immediately kill the biological elements in your tank. Then install a Dieselcraft Fuel Stabilizer to assure that this problem does not return. For disposal fill the tube with household bleach. Re-insert the slide and place in the trash. To determine the problem so it can be treated we have produced a fuel test kit that will identify biological contaminants This test is called a "dip slide". One side of the slide is "white". This will detect BACTERIA between 24 and 36 hours after exposure. The other side of the slide is "red". This will detect MOLD between 36 and 48 hours after exposure. NO spots are good news. Any reaction is bad news. Dieselcraft Test Kits
