Dieselcraft Additive Combats Fuel Contaminants

Biobor JF from Dieselcraft is a liquid fuel additive that combats fungus and other microtive life in hydrocarbon fuels, such as diesel and jet fuels, but is also effective in light oils and transmission fluid.Dieselcraft-288

Biobor JF eliminates growth of harmful slime-producing fungi that clog filters and pipelines, attack rubber fuel system components and whose waste products aid in the corrosion of metal surfaces. Biobor JF is simple to use and harmless to the wide variety of fuel system parts, top coatings, sealants and elastomeric materials tested.

It does not adversely affect fuel performance in engines. Biobor JF is an effective microbiocide because of its equilibrium solubility in both fuel and water under conditions of fuel storage.

If a system is badly contaminated, drain water bottoms. Water bottoms in storage tanks should be kept to a minimum. Good housekeeping is important in treating slime problems, but it is not a cure.

Biobor JF is used at 270 ppm in fuel to effect sterilization, and subsequently at 135 ppm to maintain fungus-free fuel. Ideally, Biobor JF should be metered. However, in the absence of metering equipment, Biobor JF may be manually batch-blended.

Biobor JF is available in 8-oz. and 16-oz. Easy Squeeze containers, designed to dispense the exact measure every time, along with one quart cans, 5-gal. pails and 55-gal. drums.

To calculate the number of ounces of Biobor JF needed for diesel fuel only multiply your gallons of fuel by 7.08 and then by .004 for initial treatment then by .002 for maintenance treatments. Example 100 gal. of fuel x 7.08=708 x .004=2.83 oz. are needed for initial shock treatment then half of that there after to maintain the tank.
