Fuel Tag helps homeowners keep track of the fuel they store.
With our easy-to-use tag, you will now know when you purchased your gas, which prevents you from using it and damaging expensive fuel-powered devices. Give yourself a pat on the back knowing you saved yourself some time, money, and more importantly, the planet.
Modern fuel has an average lifespan of 30 days.
As soon as gas starts to mingle with air, it declines in quality, and bad fuel can ruin your machine’s carburetor. Most people don’t remember when they purchased their fuel or how to track it, and they’ll mistakenly use it in their weed eaters, generators, lawn mowers, and other manly equipment.
Fuel Tag comes with a nifty zip tie or double-sided adhesive so you can attach it to your gas can.
Throw it on there, set the dials to the correct date, and you’ll never have to dump fuel again. Your equipment will also run better and more efficiently with fresh fuel. Since you now know when you bought your fuel, there’s no excuse not to use it before it expires. Work off that dad bod and mow your lawn. Or pay a broke college student to do it. We don’t care. Just use it while you know it’s still good.
We all have a large enough carbon footprint as it is. Every time you dump old fuel into the ground, a vegan writhes in pain. If you must dispose of expired fuel (which you shouldn’t have to if you’re using your Fuel Tag), the best thing to do is call your local recycling center or hazardous waste disposal center. For the sake of the environment, your wallet, and those poor vegans, avoid dumping it.
Not having a generator available when the power runs out is an inconvenience in itself. But using a generator with expired gas is worse, as it can lead to damage. Stale fuel is the number one cause of generator starting problems. Most new generators need an oil change after about 25 hours. It’s important that you have fresh oil readily available, because running around town searching for oil and filters is the last thing you want to worry about before a big storm. To minimize fuel breakdown, add fuel stabilizer to the gas and varnish build-up. Most importantly, always use fresh, stabilized gas in your generator. With Fuel Tag, you’ll never have to wonder whether or not your gas is good for use.
Putting or keeping old gasoline in your lawn mower can cause a variety of problems. Your mower may not run as smoothly, or sputter and die during operation. Bad fuel can cause clogs to form in the carburetor. Your mower may experience difficulty starting or may not start at all. In this case, there may be thump noises coming from the engine. You may associate food items with the ability to become stale after a certain amount of time on the shelf. However, the furthest thing on your mind is probably the gasoline that’s going bad while you’ve had it stored away. Using expired gas can sometimes present other problems with your mower. Knowing when you purchased your gas will help to avoid all that unnecessary lawn mower chaos.
If your goal is to keep your lawn pristine and maintained, owning a weed eater is a necessary investment. Even more necessary is knowing how to safely operate this trimming tool. While too much oil can foul the engine, too little will greatly shorten the engine life due to insufficient lubrication. The correct fuel/oil ratio varies from one manufacturer to the next. But not to worry; Fuel Tag is here to help you be certain of whether or not the oil in your equipment is still usable. Without it, you’ll probably store your weed eater away and then wonder why it won’t start up the next time you try to use it. The second you remove gas from its container, it begins to oxidize. This could lead to a gummy-like substance forming clogs and deposits within the gas lines and filter. The solution? Know your fuel’s lifespan.
Avid RVers know that propane allows you to engage in day-to-day activities, from cooking to cleaning to having heated water. Propane in RVs makes these everyday activities possible, so it’s essential to make sure that the propane isn’t musty or expired. Luckily, you can fill your RV propane tank without moving your RV at all. Since much of your RV runs on propane, you’ll save a ton of time when you have a plan set to refill the tank before it runs out. You can use a portable cylinder to move gas into your RV tank. Make safety a priority any moment you move gas in or out of your tank. Propane is a compressed gas that should be handled with caution. In some cases, RV propane might be stale, which is harmful to the vehicle. To refresh your propane tank, you can seek professional help, or better yet, get your Fuel Tag to avoid questioning whether or not you even need to change it.
Boats are known for providing good times and sunshine, but you may sometimes face issues with the fuel tank. Contamination and clogging in the tank hose may lead to malfunctions. You might notice the motor is stalling and the boat isn’t the same smooth ride you remember it as. Before anything, make sure you’re using the right fuel that matches the boat manufacturer guidelines. You can also fill the fuel tank with 5-gallon gas cans. Be sure to properly seal the fuel caps, as this restricts water from seeping into the tank and vents. When boating season comes to an end, keep the tank well covered to avoid water contamination. Even a slight amount of condensation can cause issues like corrosion. The presence of water in your fuel tank can break down the fuel and lead to microbial growth. Expired gas is another issue some face when it comes to their water vehicles. This is where (surprise, surprise) Fuel Tag comes in. Uncertainty of your fuel’s expiration will no longer haunt you. Enjoy a day out on the water without worrying that your gas has expired.
When it comes to your gasoline-powered pressure washer, always check the fuel levels and be sure to not overfill. Gasoline goes stale in about 30 days, and stale gas will only lead to component failures and costly repairs. 90% of all fuel sold in the U.S. is an ethanol blend. Ethanol blends deteriorate almost the moment they are pumped, and can break down in the fuel tank and cause rust, corrosion, and gun/varnish build-up. Protect your engine by adding stabilizer to clean, fresh fuel before filling the tank. Then, run your pressure washer for a few minutes to circulate the treated fuel through the fuel system. Maintaining the engine on a gasoline-powered pressure washer will help it run efficiently and last longer. Gas you buy at the pump degrades over time and can also lead to corrosion and the formation of varnish in the engine and fuel system. Make sure to use gasoline that's fewer than 30 days old, and use your Fuel Tag to keep track of it.
Good maintenance is a must for your diesel tractor to last. The engine in a diesel tractor will not start if the fuel tank gets filled with sedative and contaminants, because the fuel lines become clogged. First and foremost, you don't want to just drain your diesel gas tank and harm the environment. You also shouldn’t hose it out, as water is not good for your gas tank. Cleaning your diesel gas tank properly takes several supplies, but is a fairly straightforward process. Start by unscrewing the diesel fuel tank cap and separating the gas line from the base of the diesel fuel tank. Position the diesel container underneath the drain to strain out all the dirty fuel. Insert your fluid extraction pump into the tank to collect any remaining sediment and guck. Depending on the manufacturer of your tractor, always be aware of how many gallons are needed to fill your tank. Just remember, dumping your fuel should not be an option! Get your Fuel Tag and you’ll never have to think about going that route.
