Bottom line is, really don’t invest in diesel gas in West Close!!! Not only did this cost my one/three of my excursion and avoidable pounds put in, I will require to have a enterprise drain/clear my gas tank to protect against any foreseeable future problems. If the Bahamians know this is not diesel but they are doing it in any case for regardless of what motives, then shame on them!
Guys, I rarely put up but this cost me some really serious pounds and I wanted the rest of you to be knowledgeable. I just returned from the Bahamas and had a good time the very first 2 days! Unfortunately, I had to re-gas (diesel I imagined) in West Close for quite a few extra days of fishing then return excursion to Fort Pierce. Approx. ten-twelve miles into the re-gas, I noticed my engines loosing energy and ultimately achieved the point of idle pace only. I improved Racor gas filters and major on the web gas filters but dilemma even now continued. Just after a lengthy crossing back again at idle pace back again to the states, I researched possessing my gas tank pumped thinking it was undesirable gas. Come to find out, it may not have been undesirable gas but the Wrong Gas!!! Apparently Outdated Bahama Bay (West Close) has been selling “Jet-A” gas as diesel gas. Just after extra exploration, the indicator of lose of energy has all the indications of Jet-A gas not diesel. Apparently Jet-A gas has a thicker viscosity (and considerably less lubrication) and isn’t going to travel through your gas procedure as efficiently as diesel therefore leading to the engines to work 2x as tough to pull the gas through the procedure. This was validated as my vacuum gauges on my Racor gas filters had been operating in the 20-thirty assortment.
