Fuel Diamond (0558775)

  • Part Number: 0558775
  • Suitable for: All models from 1946 to 2000
  • Condition: This is a new aftermarket part

This is a fuel system 'catalyst' that neutralises the chemical reactions that occur in fuel when vehicles are left 'standing' for long periods. The ethanol content of fuel in the UK is now dispensed as E5 Super Unleaded that contains 5% Ethanol by volume and also E10 Regular Unleaded that contains 10% Ethanol by volume.

The addition of ethanol in the fuel only really becomes an issue when vehicles are left inactive for lengthy periods - classic vehicles that are ‘put away’ for the winter being prime candidates.
The ethanol in the petrol absorbs water which has two consequences:
1. The water attracts bacteria that then creates corrosion in metallic components and can lead to the breakdown of rubber and plastic components that are in constant contact with the fuel during these periods of inactivity, especially if rubber hoses or plastic floats have not been changed for several years.
2. It can start a chain reaction that will create acidic molecules in the fuel when left to sit for lengthy periods.

Fuel diamond will prevent the octane rating of the fuel from dropping and stops bacteria from developing in the ethanol. Left unchecked, this bacteria produes an acid which attacks rubber, cork, plastic and aluminium. One Fuel Diamond will treat a fuel tank with a capacity of 60 litres for a period of 5 years, if your fuel tank is larger than 60 litres then use 2 Fuel Diamonds. Simply place straight into the tank, keeping the diamond within the special nylon netting. (The nylon netting stays on the Fuel Diamond and the netting will not dissolve as it is made to withstand E25 fuel.)

Shipping & Delivery

As an international mail order company, our focus is to get parts to our customers as quickly and economically as possible. Where possible we will try to provide a choice of shipping options.

Our database knows the weight of every part listed on our website. In the majority of cases this allows automatic shipping options for each order to be chosen at the checkout. Unfortunately, penalties will be imposed by all shipping companies if a parcel is particularly large in size compared to its weight, this is commonly known as “voluming out”. This means that sometimes we are unable to accurately quote shipping for orders until we have packed the parcel and confirmed the shipping cost.

Please be aware that import duties and taxes may apply in countries outside of the European Union. All duties and taxes are set by the Customs Authority of the destination country and, as such, we have no control over them. Please note that it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay all duties and taxes.

Our two most commonly used methods of shipment are by the postal service and UPS.

We do, however, hold accounts with most major international couriers so please let us know if you have a preferred courier or if you would like us to ship using an account you hold with a specific courier.

Further information (including the ability to track a parcel) is available here:

If you would like to discuss a parcel with a member of our Logistics team please email us using: despatch@flyingspares.co.uk
