The premium pumps at a Camilla, GA station have been shut down for a month. The Department of Agriculture tested the fuel and found water contamination.
The station owner told local news he thought the culprit was a load of bad fuel. The most common culprit it leaky tank accesses - standing water in a well will find its way into a tank.
Unfortunately, the station owner felt he was forced to pay a company to empty the tank and bought a new load of fuel.
Tuesday morning, the Department of Agriculture gave the station the green light to reopen premium pumps.
Especially with the amount of rain and snow-melt we’ve been experiencing lately, it is crucial to monitor your tanks for water infiltration. This is especially true of premium tanks, where fuel levels are often low and just a small amount of water contamination can cause phase separation.
Proper housekeeping and vigilant product monitoring can forestall many fuel quality problems.
