Specialising for twenty years in the cleaning and preventative maintenance associated with underground and aboveground fuel storage systems, Fuel Doctors has earned a reputation for attention to detail and genuine customer commitment whilst providing competitively priced services and products that only a privately owned company can.

Unique in the industry Fuel Doctors are competent in both chemical and mechanical engineering, crafting their skills from day to day hands on observation and application.

Initially emergency power generation and oxidised fuel kept the company occupied until entering the service station and truck stop industry circa 1992, with a corporate goal of maintaining quality assurance for dispensed product. The company has proactively assisted fuel suppliers and fuel consumers to this end for the past fifteen years. 

With a sharpened corporate philosophy and specific industry knowledge, the foundation business known as Liquid Engineering became Fuel Doctors in June 1994.

Fuel Doctors' primary goal was to develop a tool of trade, a chemical compatible with all fuels that was passive yet effective and that could reach the inaccessible recesses within a tank to assist in the removal and minimisation of moisture, microbial growths and gums. Complimenting the chemical was the company's expertise in high volume, low micron mobile filtration, enabling contaminated fuel to be de-contaminated and  processed in-situ, negating the need to remove and dispose off site.

The microbial growths found in diesel and oil were also found in petrol with the removal of lead. Lead had prevented the airborne spores (attracted to all fuels) from germinating, and by the early '90s they were rife throughout fuel storage systems - providing Fuel Doctors with an open university degree in their chosen craft.

Quality assurance during the fuel supply chain’s infancy was dictated by large glass receptacles atop ornate pumps, which decreased in size progressively until eventually becoming obsolete in the late '80s. 

A substantial amount of fluid has passed under the bridge since those pioneering  days - fuel injection and pump systems (especially diesel ) have advanced more in the past 10 years than in the previous 90; tolerances are finite with extreme pump pressures. Technology has moved so fast that manufacturers with their extended worldwide dealer networks cannot train their technicians fast enough to keep up with the advancing injection parameters and emission targets.

With the astronomical cost of repair or removal and replacement of fuel injection components, plus the high cost of cleaning tanks, quality assurance has never been more pertinent. Consequently this site may be of assistance in preventing and minimising those costs for you.

Fuel Doctors services have evolved to include:

  • Integrity testing of tanks and lines
  • Removal and replacement of underground and aboveground storage systems
  • Environmental compliance audits
  • Flammable and combustible safety management procedures

All this whilst still maintaining our core business of quality assurance sampling, tank and line de-contaminating and the neverending boat tank cleaning that has grown from a few boats in 1992 to over 100 in 2006-07.

A joint branding distribution agreement with Castrol  in 2000 included a stringent and successful product testing regime instigated by Castrol’s new owners BP Recognition by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the team at Bosch Fuel Injection. This has brought the company many accolades.

2005 saw SuperCheap Auto roll out the new 275 ml automotive pack, allowing all motorists access to an industrial strength product developed by a committed industry leader, in a proprietory designed enviro-user friendly multi-use dispenser.

This site will  keep you abreast of the issues pertaining to contaminated fuel - how to avoid it and most importantly how to maximise power and component life whilst minimising fuel consumption and emissions.
