Weather conditions and work demands can change as fast as temperatures drop — and your diesel fuel should adjust with you. The compact equipment industry’s high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel injection systems —featured in interim Tier 4 (iT4) and Tier 4 engines — use extremely precise components to help meet emissions standards. The new generation of ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel required for these advanced technologies must be cleaner, water-free and blended for the current climate.
You can increase cold weather uptime by purchasing clean fuel from reputable suppliers, using Bobcat-branded filters and taking extra steps to make you more productive from sunrise to sunset.
Having a fuel management plan year-round is critical to machine performance and longevity. Using clean fuel is crucial to performance and longevity of the Tier 4 engines used in today’s equipment, regardless of brand. The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has developed a clean fuel resource guide and clean fuel flyer to help carry this message to customers across the industry.
