Compare the bottle to the pictures found in the test kit daily; reading the final result after four days. With very heavy contaminated fuel a result can often be seen after just 1 day. With slightly contaminated fuel it can take longer, until a result becomes visible.
The level of contamination is not above that commonly found in clean diesel.
A new test in 4 – 8 weeks is recommendable to make sure that the value remains steady. Alternatively a prophylactic treatment with grotamar® 82* (25 ml per 100 l diesel) is recommended.
Microbes are present above the numbers usually found in clean diesel.
A moderate dosage of grotamar® 82* (50 ml per 100 l diesel) is recommended to stop the contamination efficiently and fast.
Microbes are present in high numbers and you may experience fuel filter clogging or fuel injector problems.
Act immediately to help avoid potentially serious operational problems. With sludge in the tank system it is recommended to carry out a tank cleaning and to filter the contaminated fuel. The filtered fuel should be treated with a shock dosage of grotamar® 82* (100 ml per 100 l diesel) before returning into the cleaned tank. After completing these actions retest the system to ensure it has been successful.
