Bad Fuel

The way to deal with bad fuel is to siphon it out of the tank. Then, the tank should be rinsed several times with a high grade k-1 pure kerosene.

Common contaminants are other fuels. People often think they can put some kerosene into an old gas can. This is a good way to contaminate fuel. Fuels should not be mixed and that means not even a little.

Other contaminants include dirt, rust, water, and deteriorated kerosene. Deterioration can be caused by a number of reasons. It can be caused by the fuel getting old, not being sealed properly, being put into polyethylene containers, and direct sunlight.

It is also easy to get water, into the fuel, by leaving the container outdoors or through condensation.
