Warranty Policy - 2016
Fuel360 Limited, along with associated companies / partners, Diesel Clean and Polishing, warrant to the full extent of New Zealand law:
1. All Products sold by us
2. Products provided by us
1.1 Any written warranty that Fuel360 Limited provides to the Client will also form part of our terms and conditions of trade.
2. CONSUMER GUARANTEES ACT
2.1 The guarantees contained in the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 are excluded where the Client acquires Products from Fuel360 Limited for the purposes of a business in terms of section 2 and 43 of that Act.
3. FAIR TRADING ACT
3.1 Fuel360 warrant that the claims made for the use of this product and / or service are 100% correct when the product is used as per manufacturers recommended instructions.
3.2 Claims made under points 3 or 2, based on ‘fit for purpose’ clauses are limited to the value of the product supplied.
4.1 The dose instructions for FuelRight are clear. Do not overdose; FuelRight at its normal concentrations (67 ppm for 15K and 33 ppm for 30K) prevents new sludge formation and slowly dissolves existing sludge; overdosing can/will lead to filter plugging, shutdowns and fuel carbon/resins mobilized in the fuel system. We have seen some circumstances where even normal (not shock) dosing has caused filters to clog - this could be due to pre-existing condition of the filter. We recommend cleaning/changing the filters before using FuelRight. If a tank can be left idle for a few weeks then a shock dose and tank bottom vacuum cleaning is recommended but only if diesel bug has been confirmed.
4.2 FuelRight meets or exceeds ISO 4406 Clean Fuel Standards.
5. WHAT IS COVERED?
5.1 Fuel360 Limited will replace any product that has a visual difference in colour or consistency that concerns the client. Despite changes in appearance, the product still remains effective.
5.2 Liability for product in opened containers will be at our discretion and limited to the volume remaining. Replacement or refund will be at the discretion of the customer.
5.3 Any damaged packaging on receipt.
5.4 Warranty limited to 1 year but any issues with product integrity will be replaced regardless of age.
6. WHAT IS NOT COVERED?
6.1 Any damage to customer equipment caused by incorrect dosing
6.2 Damage resulting from unauthorized modification of the product
6.3 Damage caused by ingress of water. Excessive water in fuel tanks can prevent FuelRight from working effectively.
6.4 Overdosing can cause excessive sludge breakdown in a short period of time which may overload and block your filters. In addition, overdosing can quickly remove fuel system resins and carbon and place them in suspension. Normal dosing will allow the passive removal of bug, carbon and resins that the fuel system will discharge while burning fuel or collected in filters..
6.5 Maritime Certified and maintains industry standard Product and Service liability insurance 26.09.2016
