There are many ways you can enhance the performance of your fleet’s diesel engines. Doing this will not only help keep your vehicles in better shape, but it can also help you save money. Here are some tips that can help you get the most out of your fleet’s engines.

Always keep up with preventative maintenance

Diesel engines are known for being more expensive to maintain. But, the costs are worth it in the long-run to prevent even more expensive issues in the future. Keeping up with maintenance will also help your fleet run more efficiently, which can save you money on diesel fuel.

To help with your maintenance schedule, track what each vehicle in your fleet is used for. If some vehicles haul heavier loads, they will need maintenance more often. You should also keep up with oil and filter changes.

Take care of the cooling system

These systems are vital to keeping your vehicles in good shape because diesel engines generate more heat than regular gas engines. Flush and refill the coolant per manufacturer instructions and replace old parts as needed.

Use the right fuel injectors for your vehicles

Some companies claim that their fuel injectors will increase horsepower by 50 to 100. Before choosing products based on information like this, you should speak with your mechanics. They will be able to tell you which fuel injectors are best for the engine power, fuel efficiency, and exhaust emissions of your diesel engines.

Use high-quality fuel

The quality of the diesel fuel you use can affect the efficiency of your engines. Clean, high-quality diesel fuel will help your engine run better while dirty, sludgy fuel will clog the filters and fuel injectors. Eventually, this will cause the vehicle to run with poor performance. You can help prevent this by using your bulk diesel within twelve months and purchasing only the highest-quality fuel.

Besides using quality fuels, you can also consider premium diesel. This type of fuel has detergents, which helps keep it and your engines clean. Premium products also have a higher cetane level, which can extend the lifespan of fuel pumps with better lubricity.
