 Fuel stagnation problems

Anyone ever have any problems with tractor fuel that was in the tank of the tractor over a winter. Say like 5 months? Any suggestions on what to do? Run it or add something to it or dump it?

 Fuel stagnation problems

You are talking diesel fuel, right?

We have a Massey 135 that sat for many years without being started. When the time came it started and ran fine on the old fuel.

I've seen some conflicting info, but generally one of the advantages of diesel fuel over gasoline is that it doesn't "go bad" as quickly.

My TC29 usually has the same fuel in it from the end of mowing/harvesting season until spring plowing. I'll change the fuel filter when I add more fuel.

I'm sure others will have different opinions and experiences.

Good luck,
Bill

 Fuel stagnation problems

I have never seen any problems with diesel. Much of our equipment is parked all winter and runs just fine in the spring.

I believe I would not park it almost empty for an extended period but if I did I would add fresh fuel b4 starting. The other concern would be condensation during extended periods with an empty tank.

We also have lots of small gas portable stuff the starts and runs just fine. Where we see problems with gas is low fuel levels in warm storage and condensation in the cold storage.

The only problem I've ever had with setting diesel is algae. That can be taken care of with a bottle of algae agent at your local automotive store, (I forget the name). If it gets real bad it can clog your fuel filter with a black slime.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure there was not something I needed to know. I did fill her up last Nov. before parking it. I did not think I would be NOT there all winter because of the strike. Thought I would be running it all winter but situation changes made me become a mister mom for a few months. Thanks again.
