fuel tank woes

dirty fuel
Posted: 3 Dec 2002 - By: Robandcathyjohnson
Two years ago I purchased diesel fuel at a marina which apparently was having problems with its fuel tanks and hoses, unbeknowst to me at the time.  Since then I have been plagued with fuel tank problems--biological and sediment.  I have completely drained my fuel tank, flushed it with kerosene, used biocide and fuel stabilizer, all to no avail.  After anywhere from 7 to 12 hours of engine operation on new fuel, the filters are once again clogged!  Has anyone else had this problem?  What did you do to overcome it?  S/V Tempus Fugit, Rob Johnson:angry:
