The Marine 16 Diesel Bug Treatment NZ - DBT is a Biocide formulated specifically for preventing or eradicating the microbial contamination known collectively as Diesel Bug.
DBT – Diesel Bug Treatment NZ is a broad-spectrum biocide formulated to prevent or eradicate the microbial contamination of fuel from Yeast, Mould and Bacteria, commonly known as Diesel Bug. A 100ml bottle of Diesel Bug Treatment NZ is sufficient to prevent diesel bug growth in 2000 litres of fuel (50ppm). For serious Diesel Bug NZ contamination this should be increased to 100ml to 100 litres (1000ppm). Our Diesel Bug Additive NZ, Diesel Bug NZ treatment disperses into both the water and fuel phases in your tank and will remain sufficiently active for over a year at both high and low temperatures.
Marine 16’s Diesel Bug NZ Treatment is the Diesel Bug Additive of choice for the RNLI, The Royal Marines, Sea Start and River Canal Rescue.
Marine 16 Diesel Bug NZ Treatment has been rated as the 'number 1 Diesel Bug Treatment' in the Practical Boat Owner magazine review.
Overdosing of the Marine 16 Diesel Bug Additive NZ will not harm your engine.
Note: Diesel Bug exists because there is water. It is essential to drain the water out of the tank regularly, at least once every six months. If the tank does not have a drain plug, consider purchasing a Diesel Dipper® which is designed to remove all water from the fuel tank whilst the boat is underway.
If you are certain that your tank does not have Diesel Bug growth, regular use of our Fuel Additive Diesel Fuel Complete, a multi-functional fuel treatment that maintains the quality of fuel, keeping fuel systems clean, and preventing the growth of Diesel Bug, is certainly the best (and very least) Fuel Additive you should be using.
