      What are the reasons that diesel should not be stored or conveyed through galvanised or zinc coated pipes ot tanks? Is this true?

      Quote: “Galvanized tanks are suitable for gasoline storage, but not for diesel; diesel fuel reacts with the galvanized finish causing flakes to form in the fuel. These flakes would soon clog filters.”
