We also encourage the use of ATP analysis, which accurately measures the number of living microorganisms. This is an important analysis that should be performed regularly to monitor the situation and ensure proper maintenance.

To avoid potential problems related to diesel bugs and clogged filters, we share some helpful tips:

Prevent water intrusion in your diesel, as moisture can facilitate microorganism growth.
Avoid refueling diesel in rainy conditions, if possible, and cover the filler hole to protect against water ingress.
Thoroughly inspect for leaks around the tank lid and associated gaskets, as leaks can permit water to infiltrate the tank.
Be aware of the possibility of water contamination in diesel acquired from refueling facilities.
Keep an eye on any condensation inside the fuel tank, especially if the tank "breathes" through vent hoses. While this is a relatively rare issue, it can lead to gradual water accumulation, which can be a source of growth for small microbes.
These guidelines can help you prevent problems associated with diesel bugs and clogged filters. We encourage you to visit our website for more information and advice.
