nice to know you found it

but i have seen befor who ever may have worked on the RV may have swopped your out lines for your gen and motor out lines .. the gen is set to not run all the fuel out of the tank at 1/4 of a tank but thats setting still when moving down the road it can play games at 50%full tank and the motor need more fuel flow then the gen

all so the puck line in the tank could have a pin hole in the line

Do you agree with this analogy
I agree with this, as you can buy a lot of filters for 800 dls. I would run it as low as you dare, fill at a place that sells lots of diesel, and keep plenty of filters on hand, also keep a can of diesel with you to fill the filters when you put them on! After a couple of tanks, you should have all the algae out of the system! Good luck! Rail!

If you live in Florida, you better be adding a biocide to the fuel.

I use a combination of Biobor (algae biocide) which kills the algae and Startron which is an enzyme treatment that will actually eat the dead algae. You can find this at some stores, Tractor Supply has it, however I found the best deal from Wholesale Marine
Starbrite Star-Tron Diesel Additive

Do some research and decide for yourself. Reality is that if you are using a biocide it will kill the algae but the dead algae will still be in your tanks. You can continually change filters but for the cost of the enzyme it might be worth trying.
