Biobor JF - Diesel Fuel Microbicide is a liquid fuel additive that combats fungus and other microbial life in hydrocarbon fuels, such as diesel fuels, but is also effective in light oils and transmission fluid.
Biobor JF eliminates growth of harmful slime-producing fungi that clog filters and pipelines, attack rubber fuel system components and whose waste products aid in the corrosion of metal surfaces.
Biobor JF is simple to use and harmless to the wide variety of fuel system parts, top coatings, sealants and elastomeric materials tested. It does not adversely affect fuel performance in engines.
Biobor JF is an effective microbiocide because of its equilibrium solubility in both fuel and water under conditions of fuel storage.

Is this hazardous material to ship?
Yes, cannot ship by air, $4.99 hazardous fee applies.
can this be used in my MG-B automobile?
Yes, as long as it uses diesel fuel. It is especially formulated for diesel fuel.
If your MG-B has a diesel engine it should be just fine to use Biobor JF - Diesel Fuel Microbicide.
If I add Biobor JF when I fill up, is there any reason to add more Biobor between fill-ups? I have a sailboat and the diesel does not get used much.
I have a diesel motorhome which I use Biobor JF in. I only add it when fueling. Never in between fill-ups. Sets for months between uses. No problem with algae in fuel since using Biobor JF.
Bibor is an algaecide to prevent algae from growning in the diesel when letting it sit for a long period. You also need a product to prevent condensation that also occurs when stored for a while. Add appropriate amount each t you refuel. I own a Mastercraft ski boat and that is how I store it and have had good experience
We are using this as a preventative measure in a bulk tank that had known problems with algae. It seems to do the trick but I do not know if it has any residual affect or not. I would ask the manufacturer for their recomendation. Happy sailing.
No, there is no reason to add more in between fillups. We have had diesel fuel in our tanks for 9 months and did not add any additional Biobor JF until we refueled.
I have a diesel tractor & I'm up in my years now & use my tractor very little but if you want to keep the fungus out you should treat the fuel every year even though your not using much. I've been using the same diesel I paid $.58 cents a gallon, if that tells you how long I've had it plus I use the Pri-D diesel treatment every year & the stuff still works good for me.

Can I use both Biobor JF and Biobor MD in the same tank? Seems like they have different purposes. Are they compatible?
I use Pri D & Biobor Diesel full microbe & have no problem. Ones for fungus & other for addative for storage

What is the shelf life?
I could not be able to answer that but I know that this product works well and I need to order some more

does it eliminate water in the boats fuel tank?
No, its just a biocide. Nothing short of cleaning the tank and adding a water separator gets rid of water once it is in the tank. I have a 10 mil filter and water separator installed prior to the 3mil filter on the motor. This added to a dual tank / filter system lets me swap filters and fuel supply if I have trouble. The reason for the biocide is I can't use the fuel fast enough and it goes stale with stuff growing in it.
How much do I use when taking on 200 gals of fuel?
1 oz. per 40 is the shock treatment, for basic its a .5 oz. per 40 gallonsso thats 2.5 oz for a 200 gallons
1 oz. per 40 gallonsif my math is correct should be 5 oz. to treat your 200 gallon tank....
diesel additive called BioBor JF, it is a biocide. Do you sell this as a case, how much is for the case?thanks,cecilia.
We do not sell biobor by the case.
Just pour in the recommended dose and your diesel fuel is protected. I have been using it for about four years - never had a problem with my diesel fuel over that time period.
I have been using this product for years. It is very effective at maintaining the quality of diesel fuel while its in your tanks.
Very fast service!!
Very fast service, just as advertised, will buy again!
Seems to work well; the fuel stays clear over the winter months.
Add this product to your diesel fuel tanks and it will protect against the build-up of sludge. Easy to use and it works well.

This is the most trusted diesel fuel additive we have found. It's easy to use and easy to store.

Trying to restore stuck fuel guage
Want to see if it will free up a stuck diesel fuel tank guage. Might have built up a bacteriaproblem. Will know more after a couple hundred road miles, but do see some signs of life now that I feel were not there before I added 4 oz.
Boibar Solved My Problem
I have a motor home with a Cummins 330hp motor. It sat for almost 2 years and when it was used I experienced partial stalls that appeared to be the result of a stopped up fuel filter. After changing filters the problem remained. I had also had the problem of an inaccurate fuel guage. Now I know after using Boibar that both problems were due to alge growth in the old fuel. Now everythimg works great, thanks to your product. I would like to know why the bottle states "not for on-road use" as it certainly worked for me.
do not have any
It Just Works
I've used this product for years and never had the microbe trouble with my fuel that I see others have regularly. It works.
