I am glad to get the warning about the possible fuel issues in the Med. Having been in Florida a lot I am familiar with the algae growth issue which I control using Bio-bor, an algaecide. Is there also a bacteria that we have to worry about as well??
A friend of mine who sells Yanmar started having the injection pumps of relatively new engines seize up right after the change to the low sulphur fuel. After a lot testing he determined that this was a lubricity issue and found that a product called Stanedyne cured the problem. I am sure that the 2 cycle motor oil works as well. The Stanedyne does seem to burn clean, no oily film on the waterline of my boat.
