Dirty Diesel?

Will be in the Abacos next month and concerned about getting dirty diesel. Have a 42' Trawler and will be topping off the tanks at Old Bahama Bay and then again around Green Turtle or Hopetown before we return. Any suggestions on where not to go or will I be pretty safe with Abaco fuel?

Re: Dirty Diesel?

We've never had problems with bad or dirty fuel in those places you've listed. We also buy good fuel at several places in Marsh Harbor. I don't think you'll be disappointed

Re: Dirty Diesel?

Good answer. I was mulling over whether I should bother with with a filter. I'll buy one. Thanks.
