RE: Algae in fuel

I may have as much or more experience with alge in fuel. Get the biocide from a store that deals with marine products, West Marine is one. Fishing boats deal with alge often enough. The biocide added at the refinery is not good enough sometimes.

RE: How do you avoid Bio Diesel (over B5) while on the road?

Calling BS on BD causing OP's repair bill. The last 100,000 miles on my Ram have been on B100. I know people that run B100 on 6.0 Rords with no problem.

RE: Prelube pump

I have seen pressure systems that pre lube every time you start the engine but the might not be good for long time storage. Just as above, disable ignition.

RE: What unusual location have you parked overnight at?

The Slabs, fire lookout, bottom of a gravel pit,truck parking lot with armed guards in El Paso. Next to a fenced pioneer grave in the desert, Jaw Bone Canyon in the week after Xmas with hundreds of dirt bikers.

RE: Spring is here

It will be 70f today here in NorCal, our hopes are that it gets colder again because we really need more rain/snow to fill the water supply lakes. However since we are camping let the sun shine two more days.

RE: 06 Dodge Diesel Engine Shutdown Adventure-UPDATE

Grit dog, I am sure my tank snot was my fault both times. Pumped the wrong tank most likely. My truck ran the first 100k on B100. I made thousands of gallons and used by a variety of motors with no problems. My snot resulted from my pumping some old stuff that should have been put on a bonfire instead. Get a little water and old BD together and snot grows.

RE: 06 Dodge Diesel Engine Shutdown Adventure-UPDATE

I don't know Wayne, but my sense is it would not hurt. I haven't had a problem in my Honda and I don't run it all that often. I do use Sea Foam in all my gas motors. Now that I have said no snot problem I am going camping, leaving this evening and hope I haven't jinxed myself. The snot problem in my Dodge was severe, three filters in less than 100 miles. Never dropped the tank just sucked the fuel out and thru a filter then back in. That and liberal dose of algecide. I suspect I must have pumped in some old biodiesel by mistake. These days I run a prefilter also.

RE: 06 Dodge Diesel Engine Shutdown Adventure-UPDATE

So is algecide a emulsifier? Diesel engines around the world use algecide especially in marine applications but I don't know common rail engines. All I can tell you that in the two times my tank developed snot I got rid of it.

RE: 06 Dodge Diesel Engine Shutdown Adventure-UPDATE

Not saying alge in the tank is your problem but having been thu this I would advise algecide into your tank each time you fill up for awhile. Have you used biodiesel recently?
