Fuel sampling services for consistent quality and condition


Fuel sampling

Water and other contaminants cause fuel to deteriorate and remedial action, such as the use of additives or fuel polishing, is needed to restore it to peak condition. To ensure consistent quality and performance, a regular programme of fuel sampling and testing is essential.


As part of its wide-reaching industry services, LCM’s specialist teams will carry out your fuel sampling regime, or alternatively, provide you with staff training and fuel sampling kits to carry out this essential procedure yourself.

LCM’s Fuel Thief testing device

LCM’s Fuel Thief testing device enables you to take consistent and reliable fuel samples yourself. Labelled sample packs are provided, and a fast courier service collects your samples for delivery to the LCM’s Southampton fuel laboratory.

Fuel sampling training

As well as training your staff in fuel sampling, LCM will also teach them how to analyse the test results using our specialist databases. This allows you to efficiently monitor and review your fuel performance over any given period.


Where contaminated fuel is detected, corrective action will be needed to address the problem. Your staff will be trained in remedial action and know when to intervene to maintain consistent fuel quality. They can also call our skilled and experienced staff for advice if a problem is identified.
