Excessive coolant conditioner (greater than the recommended 6% initial fill) together with concentrations of antifreeze greater than 65% cause deposits to form and may result in overheating.
Fuel System
Fill the fuel tank at the end of each day of operation to drive out moist air and to prevent condensation.Do not fill the tank to the top. The fuel expands as it gets warm and may overflow.Do not fill fuel filters with fuel before installing them. Contaminated fuel will cause accelerated wear to fuel system parts.
Check the fuel level with the dipstick in the filler opening. Drain water and sediment from the fuel tank at the start of a shift or after the fuel tank has been filled and allowed to stand 5 to 10 minutes.After changing the fuel filters, always prime the fuel system to remove air bubbles from the system.Use only fuel as recommended in the "Coolant fuel and Lubricant Specifications" section of this guide.Fuel Tanks
Fuel tanks contain a provision for draining water and sediment from the bottom of the tanks.Drain water and sediment from any fuel storage tank weekly, and before the tank is refilled. This will help prevent water or sediment being pumped from the storage tank into the machine fuel tank.Types of Fuel
Caterpillar diesel engines have the ability to burn a wide variety of fuels. These fuels are divided into two general groups, preferred and permissible.The preferred fuels provide maximum engine service life and performance. They are distillate fuels. They are commonly called diesel fuel, furnace oil, gas oil or kerosene.The permissible fuels are crude oils or blended fuels. Use of these fuels can result in higher maintenance costs and reduced engine service life.Refer to "Fuels for Caterpillar Diesel Engines," Form SEHS7067, for a detailed summary of preferred and permissible fuels and their specifications.Refer to S.A.E. J313 Diesel Fuel Specifications for information about fuel properties, such as ignition quality, gravity/density, viscosity, cloud point, sulfur content, etc.Fuel Cetane Requirement
The minimum fuel cetaine number recommended for this engine is 40.Fuel Cloud Point
Fuel waxing can plug the fuel filters in cold weather. The fuel cloud point must be below the temperature of the surrounding air to prevent filter waxing and power loss. Fuel heating attachments are available from your Caterpillar dealer to minimize fuel filter waxing.Fuel Sulfur Content
The percentage of sulfur in the fuel will affect the engine oil recommendations. Fuel sulfur is chemically changed during combustion to form both sulfurous and sulfuric acid. These acids chemically attack metal surfaces and cause corrosive wear. Certain additives used in lubricating oils contain alkaline compounds that are formulated to neutralize these acids. The measure of this reserve alkalinity in a lubricating oil is known as its Total Base Number (TBN). Higher engine oil TBN values are essential to neutralize the acids from combustion gases and to minimize corrosive wear.Any API performance oil should have sufficient TBN for fuels with less than .5% sulfur.If the fuel has over 0.5% sulfur content, the engine oil must have a TBN of 20 times
