Farmer from Somers, IA
Annual usage: 20,000 gallons
"I was having fuel issues and the fuel filters kept plugging on my machinery. After being contacted by a STAR Energy FS salesperson, I agreed to try Dieselex Gold. A STAR representative came out to the farm and treated the tank and filled it with Dieselex Gold. I have noticed a big difference in how my machinery runs after upgrading to Dieselex Gold. Since we have switched to Dieselex Gold we have plenty of power and no longer have fuel filter issues. I have been working with STAR now for 15 years. "

Scott met with Curt after a referral from Mike Holtapp. Curt was also experiencing filter issues and after talking about and ready our Dieselex Gold brochure decided to try Dieselex Gold. So Curt started using Dieselex Gold in September 2009 and since he switched his filter problems have stopped. He is very happy with how much he has saved on filters and no downtime while busy in the field.
Mike Holtapp has been in the farming and trucking business for 29 years and has five farm units and one semi truck that uses 7000 gallons annually. Scott stopped to see Mike on a cold call with John Hepler.
Mike said that he knew our fuel was better but was using another competitor because they could supply him with no lead gasoline. Scott corrected that issue about the gasoline and after three more sales calls Mike agreed to give Dieselex Gold a try September of 2009. Mike was experiencing filter issues with current fuel but since changing to Dieselex Gold has had no filter plugging problems. Mike is very happy that he does not have filter issue and the downtime involved.
