These guys have been around for many years. Hope your delivery valve O-rings will be okay. It's a job you would rather not do. That's what keeps me from using this stuff...all the horror stories.

If you have the original O-rings in your Fuel system they may leak later. But,who is to say the Algea Biodiesel has the same chemical make up as what is normally referred to as Bio Diesel.
If you have an MW Fuel Injection Pump you have no O-rings inside of the Fuel Injection Pump.
