You likely know well that fuels are not what they used to be. It’s easy to see that fuel – both gas and diesel – behaves differently than it used to.
This means different things to different people, and it depends on where they’re at. Not what state they’re in (unless it’s a state of shock, of course) but whether they’re a fuel storage professional, a fleet manager, small business owner, or a homeowner who owns a minivan plus a Honda Accord plus a lawnmower.
The fact that fuels have changed shows up as different problems for each of these people. But the commonality with them is they all pay some kind of cost and they all want solutions to fix the pain of the problem.
We talked about some of the major changes that have happened to the fuels we use – why those changes came about, how those changes affected fuel and what they look like to all the types of people who use that fuel, and lastly, we reviewed some of the best practices that industry professionals recommend to minimize the effects of those problems.
