Heads up, diesel fuel testing

You can contact Rick or RJ for more details but here's the basics:

There are no plans to routinely test fuel; however if your truck really calls attention to itself, and/or someone protests you, this is what will be done.

2 styrofoam cups stacked together
Fill with fuel
5 minutes duration

Both cups should remain intact and be separable without falling apart.

Note, commecially available cetane boost applied at very heavy rates (more than recommended) ate right through the cups.

While this is not PhD level high science, the point was made, everyone can check your own fuel in your own shop to know whether or not you are at risk. So check yo self befo' yo wreck yo self!

Fuel samples will be taken as close to the pump as possible. If you have multiple tanks / lines, then they will sample them all.

Don't shoot the messenger

Last I heard, your beloved outfit ran about the same test.

DQ for that hook, have to get checked at next hook before pulling. Fail that and you're in deep doodoo.

I say run what ever you want. I've never understood fuel testing unless they are going to provide the fuel for each vehicle. Hell some pump fuel will fail a cup test straight out of the nozzle at the pump!!!!!!!

If you're in PPL, run whatever Haisley runs, and you're good to go.

Let's have the pullers make a rule more legit then this dumb fuel test. Promotors who crash golf carts into pullin trucks should have to take a field sobriety test. Sight on seen!!! Such neglect should not be tolerated.

Exactly. Most additives we run are for pump/inj lube and aids in start and idle quality.
