How do I check deisel fuel quality in the tanks

Postby Makin Waves » May 22nd, 2015, 4:57 pm

Brought our 2005 Carver 41CMY from Whitby to Simcoe, had trouble with bad fuel. I'm not sure if I bought bad fuel or the fuel left in the tanks went bad over the winter, anyhow we made it to Birch point Marina and Kevin was very helpful and changed filters, cleaned water separators and gave us clean fuel in my auxillary tanks to make it to Starport. I have the 2 main tanks full of fuel and don't want to dump it. How can I test this fuel before I switch to these tanks?

Dave, Talk to Pat Walker at Starport. He is THE diesel guy. I cannot say enough about Pat - Volvo flies him all over the eastern seaboard to diagnose/fix problems.
