Fuel dispensers or gas dispensers are the lifeline of any gas station. A gas or fuel dispenser pump is integral to any fuel delivery system. Whether manual or automated, the system ensures convenient and quick delivery without requiring customers to wait long in a queue. Most modern gas dispensers, which are automatic, take back unused fuel, which allows for recycling. 

However, with advantages, there are some disadvantages of modern dispensers. They are more prone to troubles and if not maintained regularly, may even cause fire. In this blog, we will discuss some easy-to-troubleshoot ideas to keep your dispenser up and running always. 

Common Issues with Fuel Dispensers

Issues with fuel dispensers may range from minor ones such as clogged lines, low voltage to major problems like fuel pump malfunctions and faulty regulators. 

You can easily identify the most common issues with fuel dispersers just by performing a few quick checks. Go through the following points to understand how you can identify the problems.

	Check the relay for a defective pump to ensure that the engine is working fine. Most of the time, engines show troubles while starting or within a few minute of running. 
	Check if the voltage supplied by the fuel dispenser is at the correct level. Too low voltage level will not enable pump to supply enough power for proper functioning. 
	Check the fuel supply lines for any leaks or blockages to make sure that the engine gets required fuel supply. 
	Check for the underperforming or defective parts such as faulty pumps or regulators. Fix the faults as early as possible. 

How to Troubleshoot?

Now you have got some ideas about the most common problems that may happen to fuel or gas dispensers, it is time to learn how you can fix the issues.

	Start by checking the equipment for even the slightest signs of damages.  It could be anything from broken parts to clogged filters. 
	Make sure seals on the hose connections are not damaged or getting in the way of flow of fuel.
	If any part is worn out or damaged, buy high-quality replacements from a trusted vendor. 
	Drain the regulator regularly to minimise the chance of it going wrong. Some dispensers have filters. These could be a fuel filter or a filter screen. Regardless of the type, you should clean filters regularly and replace them as soon as any defect is identified.
	Always use high-quality fuel from a reputed vendor to ensure excellent performance.

By adhering to these basic and simple steps, you can ensure that the gas dispenser pump is working properly and providing your customers with satisfying service every time they visit your gas station for a refilling.
