Bacterial Testing and Treatment

There are known to be over 20 species of fuel bugs that can contaminate your fuel tank. If the conditions are suitable they 'move in' and start to multiply. The fungal spores are carried by air and water, entering your fuel system via filling ports and vents. The air space above the fuel in tanks contains water vapor. The walls of the tanks are cool and the water vapor condenses on these surfaces. This water subsequently accumulates and sinks to the bottom of the tank creating an ideal environment for the growth of the most common of fungi "Cladisporium Resinae". Once in a fuel supply this contamination can exist virtually undetected and wait for the right conditions for growth. They can double their numbers every 20 minutes and one single spore can produce over 260,000 cloned descendants in six hours. Each spore lives for about 48 hours and as older fungi die their bodies accumulate, forming a slime that ultimately floats upwards into the fuel, a bit like soft candy floss so it doesn't take long for the fungi to dominate the entire fuel system.
