Unleaded fuel question
Iyong unleaded fuel ba natin dito eh pure? Just wondering kapag katagalan ba na ginagamit natin ang unleaded fuel sa sasakyan wala ba talagang point na papasukan or magkakaron ng water deposit sa loob ng engine?
All fuels are clean coming out of the refinery. Water contamination is usually caused while in storage (gas station tanks) or while in transit (the hauler steals some fuel and replaces it with water or kerosene).
Some prevention can be done by choosing your gas stations (medyo bago/well maintained at hindi nababaha) and maintaining your fuel filter. On new CRDi diesel engines, some recommend adding a secondary fuel filter as a precaution.0
Hi Slamm, what if binaha iyong paborito mong gas station and unknowingly may nahalong tubig sa tanks nila, may possibility din na mapunta sa kotse natin iyon right?
Ano na magiging effect nun pag nagkaganun? Agad-agad bang masisira sasakyan natin kung nagkaganun or mareremedyuhan naman din iyon, like hehe pabayaan hangga't maubos iyong fuel or di kaya kargahan ng high octane na gas?0
shun_sakurai when in doubt, FLAT OUT!It happened to a few of my friends before. They experienced fouled ignition. If I remember correctly they filled up at Caltex near BF Para?aque a couple years ago; I'm not sure how they remedied the problem.
One remedy I guess is to just have the tank drained and refilled once more, from an "untainted" station. I'm just not sure if gasoline cars have drain plugs in their fuel tanks like some diesel vehicles do.0
It depends on the amount the water contamination... If in small amounts then the filter usually does its job. Thats why its important to check and change the fuel filter regularly (every 20,000kms usually).
If its significant, you can experience some idling problems, "tope"/detonation, "palya"...
There's this interesting item called "Mr. Funnel", youcan use it while putting gas and what it does is it separates any water from the fuel: http://www.mrfunnel.com/Learn_More/How/ I'm wondering how i can obtain one here.0
ot: not really. I like and have taken care of boxers before but it's not really a hobby.
Some guys on another we're able to bring in a MR. FUNNEL before and when they put gas in their rides, most often they got water into it (probably meaning water contamination is quite high a possibility, even in small amounts).0

all fuel tanks have built in drain plugs to facilitate servicing and cleaning (if necessary)0
shun_sakurai when in doubt, FLAT OUT!^ Thanks for the info dude! I thought only diesels had them.0
