Fuel Injectors & Pumps – Section 4.5 Fuel Stability

Section 4.5
Fuel Stability

Diesel fuel oxidizes in the presence of air, heat, and water. The oxidation of fuel can result in the formation of undesirable gums and black sediment. Such undesirable products can cause filter plugging, combustion chamber deposit formation, and gumming or lacquering of injection system components, with resultant reduced engine performance and fuel economy. Good quality fuel is a requirement. ‪
