The Importance of Fuel Extraction

Fuel is a highly hazardous material, so working with it can be dangerous. That’s why it’s critical to have the tools to safely and quickly remove fuel from the end-of-life vehicles at your scrapyard. With the Fuel Scavenger and the Fuel Tank Drill, you can prevent hazardous waste from polluting your work area.

These tools also allow you to dispense the fuel directly back into a storage tank so that this valuable material does not go to waste.

The Fuel Extraction Process

There is an order to removing the hazardous materials inside of a vehicle, and it is:

  1. Battery

Next, the following fluids should also be removed in any order:

  • Antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Engine oil
  • Transmission fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Differential fluid (if present)
