    Isn't this then a case for additives?

    Well my tank on the tractor was pretty low after winter and when I pulled out the tank strainer like I always do because the funnel has its own screen, there was black I assume mold on the strainer. Now all I did was to wipe it off before I put it back in after I filled the tank with new, but I assumed that I would have to put some biocide in the storage tank before I filled it this year. Now are some of you stating that that is not necessary? I just don't know because I have never had any kind of a diesel car, truck, or tractor before in my life and I just don't know. I would assume that a biocide couldn't hurt, or that even putting some trans fluid in it wouldn't hurt but like I said I just don't know, and there are so many different oppinions in this thread that that it just isn't helping!

    I run Lucas or 911. The military shops I know run the 911 in most equipment.
