    Changing oil is a headache for service engineers as, unlike changing the oil in your car, oil changes for industrial equipment is based on need. Often service engineers plan an oil change to halt further contamination. However an oil change is not correcting the problem; not only is this costly but provides further consequences for the environment with oil waste.

The new ULSD with FAME content has a shelf life and if not kept in check will result in many cases equipment downtime and equipment failure. The change in fuel has had an impact on emergency fuel powered generators used as back up for banks and data centres encase of power failure.
