I've asked this before, but can't find the old thread. I've got a 200 gallon tank. What additives are y'all putting in to keep it clean and fresh? Need something for algae, cleanliness and freshness.

I always use Power Service Bio Kleen diesel fuel Biocide in my 500 gallon bulk tank and have never had any problems, I also double filter coming out of the tank, one water block and one particulate filter

Thanks, I think that's what I have used before, but I couldn't remember, and couldn't find my old receipts. I've got a water block, but not a particulate filter on mine. Maybe I should consider adding a second. Mine is gravity feed though. I don't know if it would work as well without a pump.

Does storing your diesel tank under cover help to limit the moisture that accumulates in it?

I use Hot Shot in the winter. Really helps. I use this biocide in the summer.

I honestly can't say for sure but I don't think it can hurt, I think the best thing to do is keep your tank as close to full as possible.

When my 300 gallon diesel tank was outdoors water was in it. I moved it into my equipment storage building and there has never been water in the fuel since. Also on the tank is a fuel filter and water separator. After filling the tractor or other machine I open the bottom drain valve of the water separator to drain a few ounces of diesel out even though no water is visible.

You also can’t help but think pounding rains and hot sun, piled up snow can be good for your fuel supply, right?

Is there such thing as an air dryer for a fuel tank vent?
Just to add one more maintenance point...
