Fuel Pumps and Injectors

Fuel pumps and injectors are constructed with expensive, high precision parts. It is imperative that the fuel protect the injection system. Anyone who has ever repaired or replaced a pump knows that these are extremely expensive components. Diesel fuel lubricates components of the pump. Particles of any type will have a grave affect on the system. Injectors have shown signs of accelerated wear in LS diesel due to poor viscosity and lubricity. They are susceptible to corrosion or erosion due to water. Large particles will block the injector orifice and alter the spray pattern of the fuel, preventing efficient burning, resulting in excess black smoke.
