As someone who has had the fungus (with ULSD), I can tell you this little bit of ins. is well worth it.


+1. SOP for me is always a biocide and circulation in the fuel system before storage. I use Powerclean Biocide but any brand will do.

I too went through the algae issue and I did all the work myself and the parts alone were north of $1000.00. If it was a shop, probably 3+

All it takes is one time and then the bottle of biocide looks pretty cheap.

Thanks to all for your input. I'm ordering some Biobor JF from Amazon and will use it as a preventative treatment as soon as I get it. Better safe than sorry.

Yup, put it in. Fill the tank and drive long enough that the biocide circulates through the system.

If I had a diesel I would do as Ducktape and ScottG say.

We can't let the rv sit for long periods of time. We're in the 'Grit dog' crowd, we use our rv all year long for lunch or dinner outings. We cook our food at home, hop in the rv, drive somewhere like a park , don't even have to get out of the rig. No other human contact and not worried about catching anything while driving. I drive at 65 mph, COVID-19 only travels at 55 mph .
