Rich Barnum of Yardley, PA, asks:

How can you be sure of the quality of the fuel you will be purchasing in remote areas of the world?

Ray Danet responds:

Actually, you never know what you're going to get. We have been very lucky in the fact that we have never had to get fuel from 50 gallon barrels. To date we have gotten our fuel from the same bunkers that all the commercial boats use. Before we put fuel in the Nordhavn, we take a sample in a clear container to check for water and dirt. We do carry a "Baja" fuel filter along if by chance we do run into contaminated fuel.
