Established in 1994, and 100% Australian owned and operated, Fuel Doctors™ specialise in cleaning fuel tanks. Many of the commercial underground storage tanks they were contracted to clean, had no physical access points, so they needed to develop a new method of tank cleaning.

Every time you fill up, you take the risk of dirty fuel causing damage to your fuel system. Each tank of fuel you buy could contain enough water to flood your common rail direct injection system, as it only takes around 30ml. Yes as little as a shot glass! That top up on the [...]
When considering the cost of replacement injectors, fuel pumps, and other components, Fuel Doctor is very good value for money as it can prevent damage to these components and extend their service life. When compared to other fuel additives, not only does it treat dirty fuel better, but at recommended treatment rates, Fuel Doctor [...]

Water provides the oxygen source for fungal spores (Cladosporium resinae) to grow and consume their favourite food—the hydrocarbons in fuel. Water from condensation also promotes flash rusting [...]
The introduction of common rail direct injection in diesel engines has created more opportunities for gum and varnish deposits to form and cause problems with fuel flow, injector spray patterns, and fuel atomisation. The higher pressure also makes it more dangerous for water and other microbial contaminants to pass through the system as they [...]
