The captain of this nice 36′ Hunter sail boat noticed some sludge accumulating in his fuel filter and decided to give us a call. Although his charter business had been going strong and he was extremely busy, he did not want to risk anyone’s safety with a contaminated fuel tank and wisely decided it was time for a cleaning.
As in most cases, we gained access to the tank through the sender which permitted us to vacuum the entire tank floor in this circumstance. As you can see, we removed a small amount of water and a load of sludge including various other solids. Nasty. The captain was amazed at what was in his tank and has decided to have it cleaned on a regular maintenance schedule.
Note: Sail boaters this message is for you. You know your fuel sits for quite a while, and I’m willing to bet it’s been too long since your last cleaning… am I right? Call Allpure Filtration: 239 540-8550
