we use biocide where I work but it is only for diesel that is sitting for any period of time, we carry 800,000 ltr of diesel as a second fuel source (Natural gas the main fuel) so it does sit alittle. I cant remember where we get it but I can find out, if memory serves me it is not cheap. maybe if water is a problem then you made need to look at a different supplier or drain the tank and clean. After a cup of metho will absorb water before refilling with diesel.
Normally cars have a high usage of diesel and microbiological activity is not a problem.

Will check on supplier for you and price.

Thanks you sensei !
As i will be away for couple months and doesn't want any chance for microorganism to take advantage of this period, I need to take some necessary precaution.
If you can find some more info and price, would you please get back to me or email to me : kelnanhkjp@hotmail.com
Thank you

I use a product called Chemtech Diesel tretment at a rate of 40ml per 100 litres

This should do the trick

Try Shell Biocide, might have to get it at depot, or Chemtech Diesel Power, at any servo, or auto parts. Hooroo...
