    Hey I'm not sure if this should be here or to the AE guys or both. But I just need to find out a little more on micro bacterial contamination and ways to prevent it in jet fuels. Any of you know about it or have and sources on it?

    There are a few articles you can get online (at least as abstract) at the Internation Biodegradation Biodeterioration journal.. I recall a few also being in the old J. Indust Micobriol

    The central element is water - in the fuel sump.
