Pipeline Customer Newsletter: Autumn 2015 Edition!

October 12, 2015

We are excited to release the most recent edition of our Pipeline Customer Newsletter! This edition contains an article about how to better plan for storm season, a new product called Fuel’z Edge, highlights about our tank monitoring services, and much more!

Below is the introduction to the first article in the newsletter: “Prepare for Storm Season”.

As we start this storm season, you should know that power outages are becoming more frequent. Research from Climate Central reported that since 2003, the average number of weather related power outages has doubled. This means that now more than ever you need to make sure your business is ready!

We can’t control the storms, but we can prepare for them. Many of our customers have already prepared with generators. Many more are in the process of doing so.

But simply having a generator is not enough. It must be tested and maintained. Unfortunately, fuel maintenance is often overlooked.

Why? Most of us don’t understand what makes the fuel fail:

  • Stagnation
  • Destablization
  • Water
  • Microbial Growth

The other major issue? No fuel and no commitments to get fuel when you need it.

So what can you do to make sure your generator fuel is ready to perform and solve these issues?

  1. An additive like Diesel Direct’s Fuel’z Edge can help stabilize fuel in storage and prolong its shelf life.
  2. Microbial growth lives in water and feeds on fuel, so be sure to check the tanks for water and remove the water. This will help you avoid this problem.
  3. With our tank monitoring system in place, we will review your tank details and help schedule your fuel delivery so you always have enough fuel through a Business Continuity Protection Program Agreement.
