The review in Autobild Magazine (tested by SGS) found the Triboron Formula to be active against bacterial attack under winter storage conditions. The test showed that all five types of bacteria, yeast and mould tested were eliminated.
Further testing provided by Technische Mikrobiologie Dr. Jutta Höffler GmbH in Hamburg 2016 provides proof that Triboron also effectively prevents the growth of Bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa), Fungi/Yeast (Hormoconis resinae) and Mold (Yarrowia tropicalis). Under some circumstances their prescense is completely eliminated.
Triboron Fuel Formula was added to a diesel-fuel in three different concentrations; 1:500, 1:1000 & 1:2000, where 1:1000 is the recommended concentration regarding fuel-economy. The prescence of bacteria, svamp/yeast and mold was then measuered three times after a certain amount of days; 1, 7 and 28 days. At double the dosage, 1:500, which is recommended when having problems with bacteria, the result shows that the three microorganisms chosen for the test is completely eradicated somewhere between 8 and 28 days into testing.
Pseudomonas Aeruginosa (Bacteria)
The test shows that the most efficient way to prevent the growth of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is to use a concentration of 1:500, after 28 days no further growth of the bacteria was seen.
Hormoconis Resinae (Fungi/Yeast)
The test shows that both the 1:500 concentration, and the 1:1000 concentration effectively prevent the growth of Hormoconis Resinae, after 28 days no further growth of the fungi/yeast was seen.
Yarrowia Tropicalis (Mold)
The test shows that all of the concentrations effectively prevent Yarrowia Tropicalis (Mold), after 28 days, no further growth was seen.
