Sar-Gel water identifying paste provides a fast, reliable way to detect water in tanks containing gasoline, gasoline/ethanol blends (containing up to 15% ethanol), diesel, jet fuel, fuel oil, biodiesel, solvents and other water incompatible materials. The white/pink paste turns deep scarlet on contact with water and works especially well in alcohol blend systems.
What is the impact of water contamination in fuel?
The impact of the water contaminating fuel can cause filters to plug and cause serious damage to the engine’s fuel system. When water and fuel are mixed, microbial growth and bio-degradation of fuel can cause fuel injector failure over time. If water is left in the fuel tank, an environment is created for rust and increases the possibility of perforation to the fuel tank.
