Diesel bug (also known as fuel bug) – is a bacteria which thrives on the water in diesel fuel – a worry for many boat owners today; contaminated fuel can cause all sorts of problems, from increasing filtration costs through to causing long-term engine damage.

As modern biodiesels have a higher natural water composition than traditional diesel, there’s a higher risk of diesel bug. However, choosing the right engine filter can help you avoid potential problems, and focus on enjoying your time on the water.

In this ‘how to’ video guide, Jason Church from A.S.A.P. Supplies demonstrates the Parker Racor turbine fuel filter. Patented with new Aquabloc technology, this filter stops 99.9% of water going through the element. That’s good news for boat owners, and bad news for the diesel bug.
