|Biobor JF® has been used for nearly 30 years as a fuel additive for diesel and jet fuel. Jet engine and diesel engine manufacturers have come to recommend this outstanding additive in many of their operating manuals as the preferred, industry standard fuel additive for eliminating Hydrocarbon Utilizing Micro-Organisms (HUM Bugs) in fuel tanks. Biobor JF® is US Coast Guard Certified and is the only diesel additive that has been given a military MIL Spec number.|
Biobor JF helps a lot to our aircraft Citation Sovereign’s fuel system to prevent microbes and fungi. We recommend 100%.
I have used Biobor for years and years in diesel fuel! Because water can condense into the fuel, algae can find a nice home in the water layer and flourish! Recently, I had a huge supercharged forklift that seemed to be losing power. I pulled the fuel line just before the filter, and NO diesel came out!!!! Algae had clogged the line..... I blew into the line to clear it, and now my forklift runs like new!!!! Immediately, I also added Biobor to kill all the algae. On another piece of equipment, my tractor, I thought someone had thrown in some leaves into the diesel tank, when I looked inside! Again, I checked for flow in the supply line, threw in some Biobor, and the black leaves started to dissolve and break down...... Its far better to just add the Biobor BEFORE you have a problem, as a tiny amount goes a very, very long way! I try and add it to ALL my equipment twice a year, especially in the Fall when I top off the diesel tanks for Winter to minimize condensation issues!!!! Now, I will Biobor ALL of my jet fuel.........
