Unscheduled downtime is very costly for commercial fleets. With every passing minute, hour and day, businesses face lost revenue, poor driver morale and disappointed clients. Regular medium-duty truck maintenance is essential to keep engines churning and profits coming in. This winter, bring your Super Duty, F-550, F-650 or F-750 in for service at Skaha Ford in BC to maximize its uptime.
One of the best ways to ensure trouble-free, lower-cost winter operation is by properly maintaining fuel tanks. Fuel additives, such as diesel anti-gel, are essential once the temperature drops below freezing. You also want to ensure that your fleet is being fed a quality winter blend of fuel to prevent wax crystals from forming at low temperatures.
Additionally, keep tanks at least half full and don’t be tempted to ride on fumes. Condensation can build up in a near-empty gas tank in cold weather. This can cause frozen fuel lines and no-start conditions, costing your fleet precious time.
Don’t leave one of your biggest assets up to chance. At Skaha Ford, our team of certified journeymen have the training and experience they need to keep your medium-duty trucks running well. Call our Service Department today to book a maintenance or repair appointment.
