Common Issues with Portable Fuel Tanks For Boats and Your System

Even the highest quality portable fuel tank for boats needs proper storage, usage, and upkeep to function properly. Otherwise, you might encounter some of the following issues more frequently. Most of the time, fuel system repairs on boats can be costly, so avoid these at all costs!

  • Fuel Goes Stale: You may have already heard that unleaded fuel goes stale, but you might not know how quick that can be. It can happen in just a couple of weeks, which can be a real nightmare surprise for you if left untouched for some time. The fuel, as it’s degrading, can be difficult to remove, blocking the fuel system; when that happens, you usually have to call in repairs, and stale fuel repairs are not cheap. To avoid that whole mess, try purchasing a fuel stabiliser; if you can’t find one, you can also empty your tank when you know it won’t see much use for a long while.
  • Old Fuel Filters:The devil is in the details, and sometimes he’s really well hidden. It can be very easy to forget about your fuel filters…until they remind you, rudely, that they exist. Worn filters will usually lead to engine trouble, such as stalling and power cuts. This doesn’t usually stop the engine from working outright, but it’s a risk best not taken, especially while out on the water. Remember to change those filters annually.
  • Ethanol: Some fuels have a percentage of ethanol in them. While most newer engines can handle these well enough, ethanol-blended fuels are still an occasional nightmare for newer and older outboard motors alike. Ethanol fuel has a tendency to absorb moisture. That’s especially true in hotter, more humid climates, just like the sort we get here in Australia all the time. That moisture usually pools in the bottom of your tank and doesn’t become a visible issue until it’s very nearly damaged your engine. The relatively undamaged fuel on top is burned first, but once the excess moisture is reached, the tank may become clogged. Even worse, that moisture mixture can become corrosive and cause expensive damage to your fuel tank.
  • Excess Water: If your fuel has been diluted with water, you’ll likely know. The vessel will have performance issues. If caught early enough, the issue is an annoying but easy fix. If caught later, you might be facing a hefty bill for repairs. That’s especially true if you’ve let moisture properly accumulate in the tank, which can lead to clogging fungus and bacteria. You can avoid water getting into your fuel by keeping the fuel somewhere dry and cool.
