No matter what type of fleet vehicles or commercial trucks you maintain, the fuel system on your diesel is an integral part of keeping you on the road. Gas systems are pretty simple - there’s basically just a pump that pushes gasoline to the injectors. Diesels are a bit more complicated.

At Pitts Automotive, Inc in Tuscaloosa, AL, we like to keep you informed on how your vehicle works, symptoms of issues to watch out for, and how to take care of your fleet, so you can stay reliably on the road for many miles to come. There’s a lot to diesel fuel systems - the components it’s comprised of, how they work, how they fail or wear out, what to do about it, and how to keep them maintained are all essential to keeping your diesel running strong. With trained, professional technicians, you’ve got access to the knowledge and equipment necessary to get the job done right. The fuel system on a diesel is a lot more complex than simply delivering fuel from the tank to the cylinders.

There are mechanical parts, electronic components, filters, separators, injectors, and more that all work together to keep your engine running. Due to the extremely high pressures diesel engines operate under, and the inherent nature of diesel fuel, there are a lot of factors that go into an effective fuel system.
