Think of a fuel tank like your lawn in the spring or fall.  If you walk out to get the paper in the morning or mail in the evening take a look at your shoes when you get inside.  That same moisture on your shoes could be in your tanks.  Or think of a hot humid day with a cold drink in your hand.  Now pretend that the drink is your tank.  Where did all that moisture/ water go?  Remember this is happening everyday!  With newer equipment and their higher fuel standards, making sure your tanks […]
