One Year Later: Cumberland Farms Eliminates Regular Diesel Tank Maintenance with HydrX
The results of the HydrX Fuel Conditioning System speak for themselves – even one year later.
We caught up with Cumberland Farms, which is installing HydrX at new and existing sites, to find out how well the solution is combating in-tank corrosion. Twelve months and thousands of gallons of fuel later, the differences are striking.
- No diesel maintenance since HydrX was installed
- Fuel quality bright and clean, no standing water or particulate
- Diesel filter lasted 12+ months without slow flow
SKIP THE SERVICE CALLS
Cumberland Farms reported no diesel maintenance since HydrX was installed a year ago. Corrosion-related service calls were eliminated and there are no indications that they will be returning. Emergency diesel maintenance events typically take a diesel lane down 3-12 times per year.
Additionally, the site’s diesel filter lasted 12 months without signs of slow flow. Typically, filters last 3-8 months before slow flow events are observed.
PROOF IS IN THE PETROL
Fuel quality is clean and bright with no standing water or particulate matter present in the samples. Compare that with a fuel sample from a diesel tank without HydrX and the results are easy to see.
The STP also shows no signs of microbial growth.
HydrX isn’t just a long-term solution; it produces results almost immediately. Within the first 24 hours of installation, HydrX removed just over a half-gallon of water. After just 90 days, nearly two gallons of water were extracted, producing clean, bright fuel samples free from particulate from the top of the tank to the bottom.

HOW IT WORKS
The unique design of HydrX removes water from the lowest point in the tank, preventing water from stagnating on the tank bottom and breeding microbial contaminants. The integrated filtration removes entrained water, rust, sand, and microbial particulate from the fuel, polishing it before returning clean fuel back to the tank.

TALK TO AN EXPERT
Other systems work to remove water from only the immediate area around the submersible turbine pump — HydrX is different.
HydrX uses suction tubes that extend along the Water Intake Device, removing water all along the tank bottom. Its unique vacuum mechanism is powered by the STP, continuously circulating tank bottom fluids through a filter and water containment vessel in the sump.
