What is Diesel bacteria, Diesel contamination ?

Oil products will like other organic products; be broken down by micro organisms. Micro organisms in this instance are bacteria's, fungus and algae. With this type of Diesel contamination, the organisms will through their metabolism, convert some of the diesel components to substances that will be damaging to a combustion engine.

There is produced a slime-like substance in the diesel. This will coat the tank and fuel system, blocking both pipes and filters. In this coating there can be found millions of micro-organisms per gram of diesel. Microorganisms attack and oxidise surfaces in tanks and fuel systems, and this couse substantial damage. Diesel contamination problems or total break down of the fuel supply system can be avoided with use of Bio Protect 2. A host of shipping breakdowns and problems with diesel fuelled cars can be blamed on these conditions.
