Something is living in your fuel system.

Many types of bacteria and fungi thrive on fuel.

Whether you operate diesels or turbines, these hungry microorganisms can fill your tanks with slime that clogs filters, plugs lines and corrodes metal surfaces.

BIOBOR' JF fuel fungicide helps you fight back.

Registered with the Environmental Protection

Agency, it's safe and effective when used as directed. BIOBOR JF measures up to military speci- fications, and it's been helping the U.S. military battle slime for more than 15 years. General Motors,

Detroit Diesel Allison and General Electric all approve its use in their engines. So do Lockheed and McDonnell Douglas. In fact, more than half the world's commercial airlines rely on it.

Before you employ a fungicidal agent, check its credentials. Get full det ails on EPA-registered

BIOBOR JF from your distributor, or write to
