Quality Fuel – Numerous Depots Have Been Tested – by Greg Salzwedel

All fuel that we uplift from the oil company refineries undergo extensive QC processes before being released – one of these tests is specifically the HFRR test referred to in the attached article to test for lubricity. The current SANS 342 specifications laid down for diesel fuel quality in RSA will conform to the internationally accepted benchmarks for both HFRR and a myriad of other criteria, some of which are outlined in the basic fuel test results reflected later in this email. The HFRR test is unfortunately very expensive and only the refineries/fuel producers have the sophisticated equipment required to test it, so it is not a common test that is done when checking fuel quality.
