Thumbs down Algae????

I think I have algae growth in my rear tank, Is diesel fuel algae green? I know ULSD has a green tint to it, but man, the feul out of my back tank was like way green, like pond water almost. This stuff was day glo green.

I also got about an estimated 1/2 to 3/4 of a gallon of water out of the rear, and about 1/2 gallon out of the front. and a little bit of rust. I was hoping to not have to drop the tanks, but oh well. Any tips on best ways to clean the tanks?????

For what fuel costs I'd be taking a bucket full of that sh*t to them and demand a refund or the costs of repair. That's an insane amount of water.

this new fuel is as green as antifreeze. I thought it was antifreeze when my brother-in-law drained his tank on a former UHaul truck.

I know its pretyty green..but the difference in the green from the front to the back tanks was just too much to pass off as green dye.....i mean this stuff was like green green......its git to be some sort of algae.

Thing is tho, if you don't complain to the gas station owners they won't do anything about it.....ever. There's no shame in letting them know you're pissed over this nonsense. I know I sure would.
