Abstract

Among all operational fluids, the most important is attributed to the appropriate quality of liquid fuels. This is due to the fact that fuels constitute the largest group of operating fluids introduced to trade and the fact that their inadequate quality parameters cause many adverse effects, including min. deterioration of the functional characteristics of the engine, increase in the costs of vehicle operation, deterioration of reliability and durability of the machine or emission of harmful components of the exhaust gases emitted to the environment. Therefore, many different technical, organizational and legal projects are planned so that the quality of fuels in the supply chain will not deteriorate. One of such undertakings is a properly designed system for maintaining the quality of liquid fuels in the supply chain: from the source of supply to the end user. Systems operating in relation to liquid fuels are not perfect and have some functional and organizational defects. Therefore, it seems advisable to carry out a thorough identification of existing solutions and to identify the possibility of their improvement. The article presents the results of research on the fuel quality monitoring and control system in Poland carried out by the author in 2009-2018.
