English term or phrase: providing clean and dry fuel
We are looking for a Latin phrase to put on our shop moto. We maintain fuel systems, which provide clean and dry fuel to the aircraft.

Latin translation:putum siccumque oleum terrae suppeditamus
Explanation:
putum = clean
siccumque = and dry ("que" is and, Latin often attachs it at the end of the word)
oleum terrae = petroleum (no word in Latin for fuel in the modern sense, so I chose petroleum)
suppeditamus = we provide
