If your pumps are slow, your gas looks cloudy or you need to frequently change your filters, chances are you’ve got contaminated fuel. Total Petroleum Services (TPS) protects gas stations and convenience stores from customer complaints and lawsuits by identifying and fixing bad gas and diesel fuel problems. We can also protect you from future contamination problems through preventative measures.
Fuel contamination most often occurs due to moisture over time and/or ingress of water and dirt through loose fittings, caps, and operator error. Moisture creates the environment for bacteria to live at the interface between the water and fuel. Over time the tank becomes a grave yard for sludge (bacteria build-up), and other particulates such as rust and dirt. Water in ethanol enriched gasoline will "phase separate," leaving you vulnerable to customer claims/lawsuits and State closure due to "out of spec" fuel sales.
Our fuel reclamation service will minimize your loss and, combined with our tank cleaning process, completely clean the interior of the tank. Other fuel tank cleaning and fuel polishing companies will use a single hose, pushing it around inside the tank and hoping it will remove most of the loose contaminate. It’s been our experience that only fluid pressure touching all interior surfaces will clean both loose material and hard, solidified build-up. Remaining waste is then vacuumed out, leaving a totally clean tank environment. Clean Tank Guarantee — or we will clean it again for free!

"Their fuel reclamation service has saved our customers thousands of dollars in what would have been lost revenue due to phase separation caused by water contamination."David J. Achten, Area Manager
"We are very happy with your results and this is the only tank cleaning procedure I would recommend at this time. Well-known processes were tried before yours and were such a hit and miss that there was no way of possibly getting anything but a half job.John Letzig, Owner
