    Diesel tank filter

    I got fuel delivered recently to my 1000 litre tank as I believe the prices were only going in one direction, (I was right) The driver delivering the fuel told me it was madness that I had no filter on my fuel storage tank and I agree, my tank is high up and relies on gravity and it works well...

    Contracting Costs

    How are current fuel/labour/machinery costs going to affect pricing to customers this year? Fuel the biggest one. 175 hp tractor here on the road is using £5-£6/hr more fuel at 80p than 50p as an example.

    Diesel generator

    What would the efficiency of a diesel generator be? We are on the edge of our 3 phase capacity and looking at a generator as temporary solution. If red is £1.00/ltr am i right that would be 10p/kw at 100% efficiency. What efficiency would a generator run at? 80%?

    Red diesel shortage?

    Red or white

    Have had builders in to help build retaining wall with rocks that have been ploughed up in the past. He has asked if I could supply some for his next job. Would be using tractor and trailer so would I have to be on white diesel?

    JD 6900 Diesel getting into the engine oil

    Our old faithful 6900 (14000 hours) is gaining oil level in the engine, doesn't look like cooling fluid because the oil has no discoloration, just much thinner than it should be so assuming it has to be diesel getting in. Am I right in thinking the only point of entry could be fuel injection pump?

    SFI and Farm Assurance ‘Earned recognition’

    This extract lifted from an email received yesterday. I understood from Janet Hughes posts that there was no plan to link SFI with farm assurance.
