How Do I Know If I Need Anti Bug For My Vehicle?
What is Anti Bug?
Anti-Bug from FAST exocet is a fuel soluble and preservative. This means that it prevents and removes micro-organisms and bacteria from fuel, therefore preventing contamination and helping your fuel to perform better for longer. It can be used as a preventative measure, helping to prevent any microbial growth in your fuel, or as a solution after identifying bacterial contamination in your fuel.
The main features of this fuel additive are:
- Covers a large variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts
- Can clean your fuel within 24-36 hours
- Protects against tank and pipe corrosion
Why is micro-organism contamination bad for your fuel?
This type of contamination, also commonly known as Diesel Bug is a common issue that users of diesel fuel experience.
Microorganisms penetrate your tank from the surrounding atmosphere, contaminating your fuel. These bugs thrive in the warm conditions, and need only tiny amounts of water and food to proliferate. They multiply rapidly, resulting in the rapid deterioration of your engine.
It can have many damaging effects on your engine, resulting in a loss of power, performance and even engine breakdown. Contaminated fuel can cause corrosion over a long period of time, or it can be an immediate problem. Dirty fuel can cause early failure in equipment of any age. Common signs of Diesel Bug in engines are blocked filters, noticeable sediment and an unexpected loss in power. Read more about Diesel Bug in our blog post to find out more about this contamination.
