Best way to store lots of diesel for long time?

How can I store diesel for a long time (months) with out any algae?
Are there any additives that help prolong the storage time without degradation of the diesel?
Thanks.

Try looking into power service additives or talking to a dealer, they offer a lot of different products and I'm sure they make something that can help. It also might be a good idea to add some sort of agitator to keep the fuel moving.

The biggest concern with diesel is the fact it is a water magnet, use a good emulsifier and a biocide, you can get both at a Marine Engine shop or West Marine and it should be good for a few years at least.
