  • Aviation Turbine Fuel Analysis Package
  • Flash Point D93 PMCC
  • Specification Testing D6751

Additional Testing:                                                                           
'Real World' Cold Weather Simulation
Our cold room is unique to the industry.  This allows our technicians to simulate 'real world'  severe cold weather conditions to evaluate the performance operability of #2 diesel fuel using actual O.E.M. pumps and filters.                                                                                                       
Fuel 'Fuel Fingerprint' via Gas Chromatograph
Reveals the cross contamination of gasoline in diesel fuel and vise versa.
