Algae growth has to do with the amount of water in the fuel. Sounds like the tank it came from has not been maintained. One of our fuel distributers that has a gas station at their tank farm has 3 tanks marked "High Sulphur Off Road Diesel". I have a 150 gallon bulk diesel tank for my tractors. It has a 20 micron water seperator filter on it. I have not tried it in my truck. Don't think I ever will, unless it is an emergency. "If it were't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all"
