Re: Heating oil filter deposits

Thanks. Guess I'll add some of that sludge emulsifier the next time I have the tank filled.

My generator also draws from this fuel tank. Fuel filters for that are $40 each, so I'd like to avoid clogging them up any faster than I have to.

Could you put a pre filter, like the General 1A-25A, in the line before the generator? The paper elements for a General are only $3-4 and have a lot of surface area so should take out a lot of crap before there is too much of a pressure drop.

That's something to consider, but I'd rather get the crap out of the tank to begin with. Don't really want water-laden sludge sitting at the bottom of the tank rusting away the steel.

Check out the website below that describes a fuel cleaning system:

Unfortunately their products are expensive but do clean stored fuel.
