However, as the age of the vehicle increases and the operating time becomes longer, the amount of precipitation impurities in the fuel tank will increase.

Although the tank has some protective measures for waterproof and heat preservation,but after long time‘s operation, it is necessary to clean the fuel tank, or replace the fuel filter and fuel water separator. Once the fuel tank is blocked, the pressure in it is too high,when you're driving truck on the road, there will be shaking phenomenon. Under the influence of high pressure, the fuel tank is very easy to crack, in case of serious diesel leak, the fuel consumption will become much higher.
