Gas Oil Recycling & Disposal
Red Diesel or gas oil can sometimes require collection due to contamination. Contaminants can cause your fuel to degrade which will. A common form of contamination is water moisture build up which creates the perfect environment for accelerated biological growth. This leads to the generator or vehicle your gas oil is powering failing to work when you need it the most.
If left untreated the contaminants will grow and eventually render the fuel in which they reside, useless. Gas Oil degradation can be a costly problem for businesses who don’t take precautionary steps to avoid it.

The contamination in your gas oil can be due to a variety of reasons. However, condensation, atmospheric absorption and a damaged tank are the most common causes. Sometimes you can receive your fuel already contaminated by your supplier. This gas oil is classed as off-spec fuel and will need to be collected and recycled by us.
Types of industries & customers we service:
The main symptoms of diesel bug contamination are as follows:
- Congested Filters
- Damaged Injectors
- Engine Failure
- Tank Corrosion
There are three distinct levels of contamination which we use to classify the fuel:
- Low – A small level of microbes were found living in your fuel but not enough to present any problems or require action.
- Medium– A moderate level of microbes were found in your fuel. A biocide treatment should remove the microbes and the filters will need replacing.
- High – A damaging level of microbes have been found in your fuel. It is also likely that the fuel contains water contamination. A full tank examination and subsequent manual tank clean will be essential, and visible signs of tank corrosion are likely to be evident once the fuel inside the tank has been collected and recycled. If the fuel is not able to be recycled then it will need to go for disposal.
