How to Deal With Water in Boat Fuel Tank No matter what model or how old boat you have owned, the engine despite being most of its time floating in the marine environment is not made to handle any amount of water inside it. If you’re a boating enthusiast or a marine professional, you may have heard of ethanolblended fuel stories. There are plenty of articles available on the web where you can dive out and read how ridiculously it attracts water and damages the interior of your boat gas tanks. Some boaters face serious issues when they store fuel that contains ethanol. Water in fuel means it can rust your Grady white tanks, cause poor acceleration, and can cause complete engine breakdown if it is present in large volume. Having been in the marine industry for more than 41 years, Atlantic Coastal Welding has established a reputed name in building and repairing fuel tanks for different boat models including Grady White, Mako, Angler, Boston Whaler, Bertram, and more to name.

Though we have published on this topic earlier as well, in this blog, we will guide you on how you can deal with water in your boat gas tanks. You might probably aware of the problems that water can create, ranging from corroding your aluminum fuel tanks to clogging carburetors, to forming algae and bacteria in the tank. Overall, water is a big concern and if you have recently noticed it around/inside your tank you should take appropriate action sooner. • If you have accidentally/unknowingly filled your fuel tank with water, the best way is to use a quality fuel additive product. A fuel additive can separate water and fuel. Once the water settles at the bottom and fuel pops up on the top of the tank, you can utilize an oil-change pump to remove all of the water. • Some tanks are designed with a valve at the bottom that allows you to drain off water easily without wasting any fuel. • You can prevent most water problems by simply opting for fuel that does not contain more than 10 percent of ethanol (E10 gasoline).

What are diesel fuel tanks made of? Fuel storage systems in any vehicle are really one of the paramount components. Apart from the engine and batteries, having a compact fuel system contributes to efficiency and performance. If your tank is old or damaged, it is important to replace it timely before it results in any hazard. It is necessary to store diesel, gasoline, or any other inflammable liquid in a safe and reliable container. Investing in a quality tank is a good choice since it helps in lowering fuel consumption and avoiding the risk of an accident. Aluminum is one of the most trusted materials for diesel fuel. Aluminum diesel tanks are widely used in boats and trucks because of its quality.

The most common materials that are used in the tank manufacturing industry are: • Aluminum • Steel • Stainless steel However, the choice of the material depends on the vehicle type and its requirements. As per the guidelines of the American Boat and Yacht Council, the material used for diesel fuel should be resistant to deterioration from the normal marine environment and other components that may get in its contact like grease, lubrication oil, salt, and water. Though steel and stainless steel are least expensive and almost equivalent to aluminum in terms of fighting corrosion, aluminum fuel tanks are always preferred due to their long life span and other characteristics. Here some benefits of choosing aluminum diesel tanks: Aluminum boat gas tanks can be seamlessly constructed and molded into the required shape and design. This becomes a key factor when you want a compatible storage system. Overall it is a clean, lightweight, stable, and effective material to get the anticipated product.

One of the best advantages of aluminum fuel tanks is they are built with baffles that ultimately prevents the fuel from swirling and keeps the fuel stable and avoid spillage. It is strongly resistant to weight and shocks in rough sea surfaces that keep the ride smooth and unlikely to cause leaks. Maintaining Diesel Fuel Tanks It is easy to contact professional tank manufacturers and get customized aluminum diesel tanks, but maintenance is the key to keep them in perfect condition. When you’re going to hold your boat for a long winter season, it’s ideal to withdraw any remaining fuel from the tank as it will produce mold and tank sludge naturally over time. You may also use fuel additives to keep the diesel uncontaminated. Continuing routine scheduled maintenance on your equipment is the best way to ensure that your equipment is operable during an emergency.
