In general, it is sufficient a quantity of water of 100 ppm (part per million) for the multiplication of microorganisms. The standard fuels contain up to 0.2 ml of water per liter, one-third of this is dissolved in the fuel while the remainder is collected on the bottom of the diesel tanks. Therefore, mold can live and multiply in diesel fuels particularly in the condensate that collects on the bottom of the tanks or which is finely distributed in the fuel.
