Brand:  Hydra

  • Knocks Out Harmful Bugs (Microbes) in All Fuels.
  • Quickly kills all fuel microbes, highly effective in fuel and water phase.
  • Stops excess sludge build-up, keeps fuel stable for over 6 months.
  • Stops blocked lines and filters, ensures long lasting protection.

Features & Advantages

  • Stored/ remaining fuel in the fuel tanks remain protected against microbes for long periods.
  • Immediately rids all contamination and prevents the re-generation of microbes.
  • Hydra FuelPlus Biocide is soluble in both fuel and water phases for better and efficient killing.
  • No more fuel lines or filters that are blocked. Prevents clogging of injectors. Prevents failures of fuel system.
  • Cut’s down expensive maintenance cost of bunker fuel and improves fuel economy.
  • Safe to use as non–flammable, non-toxic, non-corrosive. Totally combustible in fuel mixture.

Dilution Rates

Shock / Initial Dose: 1: 3000 (30 ml per 100 litre fuel)

For already microbe contaminated Fuel System

Add to the existing fuel tanks at recommended dosage to kill off all damaging microbial growth.

Refueling Dose: 1:10000 (10 ml per 100 litre)

To Protect Clean Fuel System

Add the recommended refueling dose in the tank before topping up with fresh supply. Ensure the addition of treatment refueling dose every time the tank is topped up.

Fuel Tanks

Fuels left for storage in fuel tanks will always contain some water. The amount of water present will gradually increase with time. The longer the fuel is left undisturbed the more water it will contain.

As freshly refined fuel cools down, its water solubility decreases. Henceforth, moisture, which was previously dissolved in the fuel begins to drop out of the fuel. This process continues throughout the fuel’s cooling process even during transport.  As fuel’s specific gravity is lower than that of water, as dissolved water condenses it tends to drop out of fuel, accumulating in tank bottoms and in pipeline low-points.

Fuels are usually stored for a considerably long time before it reaches the customer therefore will always contain some water. Biological diesels such as (FAME) tend to hold more water than the conventional diesels. The accumulated water is an ideal environment for the microbes to thrive and contaminate the fuel severely compromising the consistency and quality of the fuel.

Thus technical challenges are faced by Company’s in bulk storage and in vehicles, since all fuels types especially low sulphur and biological diesel can exhibit particular problems which cause difficulties in operation.

The fuels in storage, especially bio-diesel can absorb moisture from its surroundings, this can lead to microbial infestation and fuel bug issues. Fuel tanks/storages in hot countries can accumulate nearly 0.1% water depending on the volume and type of the fuel as a result of condensation during long-term storage.

Microbial infestation including growth of microbes such as moulds, fungi and bacteria if left untreated during long term storage, can severely affect the fuel quality. This microbial attack leads to degradation of fuel, decreased in lubricity as fuel additives are broken down by the harmful microbes.

Worked Well! No Problem Since...
Thursday, 5 January 2017  | 

During winter my diesel motor home isn’t used for about 6 months, we usually keep the diesel tank full to eliminate any problems with condensation.
Because diesel now contains a percentage of bio diesel, it had unknown to us been creating diesel bugs over the winter period, they caused us to breakdown in within 150 miles of setting off from the Scotland.
The mechanic advised us that we had a clogged primary filter. He replaced the filter and £275 later we were back on the road. He told me that the clog was due to algae that had grown in the tank and recommended I start using Hydra FuelPlus Biocide.
So I bought some and put it in the tank. We travelled about another 150 miles and broke down again, I checked my primary fuel filter cartridge and it was almost clogged again.
I called Hydra’s technical help line, their expert explained that my problem was a microbial growth problem and I would have to keep cleaning my primary filter until the dead sludge stopped coming through. He told me that it should soon all be gone and sure one more clean and the system was OK.
Since then I always use Hydra when I refuel and I have not had a problem since.

I bought this to treat my farm vehicles, Land Rover, Tractors etc. It is highly effective, the delivery and everything else was spot on. Treats literally thousands of litres of diesel.

Very Pleased With This Product, worked straight away. Saved me the costly job of having the garage drop my fuel tank down and cleaning it out, highly recommended.

Sorted Out The Problem
Sunday, 31 July 2016  | 

Sorted Out The Problem very quickly and to maintain the improvements takes only a small amount, I've estimated that 1 litre will last about 70 full tank fill ups.

Great Price.

I've been using this for years and have never experienced any biologic growth in my boat fuel tank. When I replaced my old tank after 20 years, the interior was clean. Great price works very well.

You Gotta Have This.

I use this religiously on my boat that has twin CATS, I was previously plagued by fuel blockages. However since using the Hydra I have never had a blocked filter.

We have a diesel bus motorhome, since using Hydra we never worry about fungus and growth developing in our fuel system.

Ques : I have purchased a 250 ml HYDRA FUELPLUS BIOCIDE .  It will be used in a small fuel tank on our 24ft yacht the tank we think holds about 6 gallons. How much should I use ?

Ans. The measuring chamber at the top of the bottle has numbers on each side these are ml to put the correct amount of additive into the fuel. First Treatment - for 100 litres of fuel in your tank would add 30ml i.e. 1x25ml and 1x5ml shot. After the first treatment you dose for the fuel you are adding to the tank i.e. you add 100 litres.
