Further to tsenator:
Whether Algae-X works, or not;
I''ve been advised that ''dead'' algae can cause problems with injectors; and this authority didn''t even recommend "Bio-Bor" (Algicide). His advice mirrored TSENATOR, thus FILTER, FILTER, FILTER.
Notwithstanding the above:
I fill from dock through ''Baha'' filter to jerry cans, then through ''Baha'' to boat, eliminating much contamination & water. My primary fuel filter has NEVER fouled in 10 years of Bahamas diesel (neverthless change filter @ every second oil change - 100 hrs).
Although I don''t have one, I recommend the use of a secondary fuel filter (which, counterintuitively, is ahead of the primary filter), such as (appropriately sized)Racor Spin-On etc.
