Fuel Storage Information

The industry-accepted test method to determine the oxidation stability of gasoline in its finished form is the ASTM D-525-98 (Induction Period Method). In this test, gasoline is placed in an oxygen charged steel pressure chamber known as a "bomb". The "bomb" is heated, and pressure within is measured over time.

When the gasoline begins to absorb oxygen (becoming oxidized and unstable), the pressure drops. Hence, the longer the pressure is maintained, the more stable the gasoline. Time measurement is in minutes. In this test, we chose Chevron gasoline already treated with Techron® - one of the most stable gasoline fuels on the market. The Techron® chemistry provides excellent oxidation stability to gasoline, as Techron® is an amine-based stability and detergent additive. Likewise, STA-BIL® is a popular consumer product with the primary function of preserving fuel stability in long-term storage. The purpose of the test below was to determine the extent to which PRI-G® provided enhanced gasoline stability when compared to these two popular products.

PRI-G RESTORES STABILITY TO 15-YEAR OLD GAS

Not only does PRI-G enhanced fuel stability, it also restores aged fuel to usability! In the next test, we took 15-year old gasoline to show how PRI-G can actually restore the stability of old gasoline within acceptable levels. The 930 minute range will provide decent ignition quality with minimal deposits. Many fresh gasolines fall within this range.

CHECK WITH YOU LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT CONCERNING LOCAL ORDINANCES ABOUT HOW MUCH GAS OR FUEL YOU CAN STORE IN A RESIDENTAL AREA. STORAGE OF LARGE AMOUNTS OF FUEL IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA CAN LEAD TO CRIMINAL AND CIVIL PENILTIES.

FUEL STORAGE BY IT'S VERY NATURE IS DANGEROUS!!!! FUEL SHOULD ALWAYS BE STORED IN A COOL PLACE AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
