About Coffs Harbour Diesel Centre

Coffs Harbour Diesel Centre was formally Banana Coast Diesel Centre, now part of Lismore Diesel Centre Pty Limited. We are recognised as one of Australia leading Diesel Fuel Injection Centres. We are a Bosch Certified Diesel Centre and one of only five Denso Electronic Diesel Control Service Centres in Australia.

For over 58 years we have seen the diesel industry change dramatically. Today diesel systems are much more sophisticated, operating under extremely high pressure controlled by advanced electronics.

The Coffs Harbour Diesel and Lismore Diesel Centre team consists of 12 skilled technicians who work out of the workshops in Coffs Harbour and also Lismore. We also have technicians that have completed courses and gained the exclusive Bosch Certified Tradesman status.

We offer one of the largest diesel teams in Australia with deep professional expertise and decades of experience. We have a life-long policy of recruiting only the most gifted and committed of young technicians, go through a extensive and professional technical development program.

The diesel qualifications and expertise earned by our team members is matched by the quality and breadth of our 58 years of on-going investment in the sophisticated test-benches and extensive tooling required to service today’s computer calibrated and controlled diesel pumps and injector systems.

The emerging generation of diesel fuel pumps are controlled using an on-pump microcomputer which balances fuel delivery and timing to microscopic levels. It is impossible to service, calibrate or repair this new generation of pumps without the matching electronically-controlled test benches, and the training to use these complex units to bring the completed pump up to factory specifications.
