Water and diesel fuel are a bad mix. Water’s the primary source of bacterial contamination in a fuel tank, since it provides an environment in which microorganisms can grow. As those organisms decompose, their residue sinks to the bottom of the tank, diluting fuel and decreasing horsepower and engine efficiency.

Enter Reverso Pumps’ D.C.-powered fuel-polishing system, which reportedly removes 100 percent of water, filters out 98 percent of the particulates, and stabilizes fuel every time you fill up your tank. Installed independently of your boat’s fuel system and coated in enamel to withstand the harsh marine environment, the system can reportedly polish up to 180 gallons of fuel per hour. (The company also makes larger systems.) Its D.C. motor draws 10 amps at 12 volts and 5 amps at 24 volts.

Available through the company, the system retails for $1,900.
