Product Description


Fuel-Guard water removing ‘Tank Scavenger’ was designed for tank maintenance purposes to prevent or remove contaminated water that can accumulate from leaking tanks, condensation, tank seepage, or within new fuel deliveries .

Dry fuel is paramount for long term storage, preventing any microbial activity. Clean dry stable fuel will inevitably extend the life of filter elements, injectors and high pressure fuel pumps.

Fuel-Guard water removing ‘Tank Scavenger’ absorbs contaminated water out of Gas Oil/Red Diesel.

Simply drop the ‘Tank Scavenger’ into your tank, it will automatically fall and lay on the tank bottom secure the lanyard or cord to the filler cap. The special water absorbing polymers inside the ‘Tank Scavenger’ will swell when absorbing all the contaminated water in the tank. The water removing ‘Tank Scavenger’ will have reached its full capacity, when the special polymers have completely filled the entire unit.

The lanyard or cord makes easy retrieval of the saturated ‘Tank Scavenger’ leaving you with clean dry Gas Oil/Red Diesel.
