Fuel Systems

The function of the fuel system is to store and supply fuel to the cylinder chamber where it can be mixed with air, vaporized, and burned to produce energy. Unless properly maintained your fuel system is susceptible to damage and poor performance. Using top tier fuel from brand name fuel suppliers and replacing your fuel filter regularly are very important to the performance of your fuel system. Over time, regardless of the type of fuel used, your fuel system will become contaminated with dirt, debris, and building carbon deposits. Performing a fuel induction service will clean your entire fuel system and get rid of all contaminates that are restricting fuel flow and causing your engine to run poorly. Our Fuel Services Include:

♦ Fuel induction service
♦ Fuel testing
♦ Fuel filters
♦ Fuel gauges
♦ Fuel hoses
♦ Fuel lines
♦ Fuel tanks
♦ Fuel pumps
♦ Fuel pump relays

♦ Fuel evaporation systems
♦ Fuel pressure regulators
♦ Sending units
