Fuel Testing

Blackstone is known for testing oil, but we can test your gasoline and diesel fuel too.

  • Moisture contamination can cause bacterial growth in diesel samples, and the resulting sludge can plug a fuel filter.
  • Suspect diesel in your gas tank, or gas in your diesel tank? The specific gravity test helps determine if fuels have been mixed.
  • The spectral exam looks at any elements that might be present. Typically everything should be zero, except for boron in gas samples.
  • The insolubles test checks for solids. No solids should be present in either gas or diesel samples.
