Starting after outdoor storage


Recommended Posts

I had starting problems after a clutch switch went bad,  I was out of town for work and the vehicle sat for a few months.  I just put in fresh oil and added cetane supplement to a mostly full fuel tank.

should I drain the old fuel and get fresh fuel? First time it has started since October.

 

Thanks and sorry if this is a dumb question

I agree. Diesel is nothing like gasoline. My old boss (Owner of a boat yard) bought an 85' Morgan Outisland sail boat that had been sitting for 7 years, we just polished the fuel (Running it through LARGE filters, till we got it down to 3 micron & clean & then ran it under power for 4 days on the old fuel to the yard.ou may want to put in a cold weather additive depending on your location.
