How to save diesel? If you want to reduce cost of farming and increase profit

Agricultural experts have told such tips to save diesel, which proves to be very useful and beneficial for the farmers. In view of the ever-increasing fuel prices, such remedies should be given priority immediately. An instruction manual is also given by every tractor or agricultural machinery manufacturer with its machine. It is prepared by experts on the basis of experience. That is why its instructions should be read very carefully and definitely, because in it the correct way of using and maintaining the machine is told. The instructions given in the instruction manual should be strictly implemented in order to get maximum benefit from agricultural equipment with minimum cost.
There should be no leakage from the fuel tank of the farm machinery and any part of its fuel pipe, because if even one drop per second leaks, more than 50 litres of oil will be wasted in a month. So, do not allow the oil to drip out under any circumstances. If it is necessary to go to the mechanic to solve this problem immediately, then do not hesitate at all.
When the engine is started, if it hears a tapit, it means that the amount of air needed for the fuel to burn in the engine is getting less than it needs. Due to this, the consumption of diesel increases and black smoke is released. The engine may need to be repaired or fixed if a tapit sound is heard. Therefore, its work should be done as soon as possible. The longer it is delayed, the more the cost will increase.
Black smoke coming out of the engine simply means that it is consuming more diesel than it needs and is not able to generate energy by burning the amount of diesel it is consuming. Only partially burnt diesel is visible as black smoke. This can also happen due to a fault in the injector or injection pump. Injectors must be checked after 150 hours of use in small engines and 600 hours in tractors.
After starting the engine, it should be allowed to warm up for at least 30 seconds. Only then should the load be put on it. Because sudden loading of the engine when it is less hot or cold, its parts wear more and the diesel also costs more.
If while working with agricultural equipment, it seems that even after increasing the speed or giving the accelerator, its power is not increasing properly, then it should be understood that the parts like piston and ring of the engine have worn out. Due to this condition, the cost of oil in the engine starts increasing. Therefore, the engine should be repaired as soon as possible.
