Dependent on how the product is stored, a shelf life of up to 6 months increased to 24 months is feasible if Peak Fuel Store is used from when the fuel is delivered. We recommend that you replace diesel after storing it for over 2 years. After this period, pre-use filters may need frequent replacement due to excessive bacteria, water and dirt building up inside the fuel tank. To prevent fuel quality and engine performance from deteriorating, we recommend Fuel Store, or keeping the tank as full as possible. This will prevent any moisture condensing in the headspace.
