How to Avoid Generator Start Failures with Our Fuel Polishing Services

When investing in power generation services, you’re investing in the ability to keep your business running in times of emergency. For those that skimp on fuel polishing services, the chance of these kinds of situations occurring becomes much higher. At GAL Power, our experts understand the benefits of keeping your diesel fuel polished and have outlined some of them below.


There are many benefits to polishing your fuel regularly, some of them being reduced cost of power generation, increased efficiency and the removal of water in your fuel. As a business, lowering your costs is always helps keep you ahead of the game and with our polishing services, you’re ensuring just this by getting the most power and efficiency you can out of your back up generators.

Clean Fuel can Prevent:

• Clogged Filters

• Emissions & Fuel Consumption

• Increased Operating Costs

• Maintenance & Downtime

• Carbon Deposits


Unfortunately, degradation is a natural process that cannot be avoided – the formation of sediment and sludge in stored diesel fuel is a reality that you are likely familiar with and one that can lead to the failure of your generator if you don’t keep on top of it. There are many environmental factors that can decrease the quality of your fuel, making it essential to have your tanks tested regularly – at least once per year.

What We Offer

  • Sampling and testing
  • Certification
  • On-site polishing

Fuel Filters Aren’t Enough

Simply investing in a fuel filter is not enough to keep your fuel in top shape – a clogged filter or mechanical failure is all it takes to create a generator start failure, which is why you should consider investing in our quarterly or yearly fuel polishing program.

If you’re looking to take advantage of your power generators as much as you can, our experts at GAL Power can help you do so with our fuel polishing, testing and certification services.
