Abstract : It was ascertained that representatives of both Mycobacteria and Pseudomonas can grow in kerosene TS-1 and T-1, diesel and hydrogenated fuels. Mycobacteria mucosum and M. lacticolum grow well in kerosene and hydrogenated fuels. Diesel fuel with a sulfur content of 1.6% was utilized slightly by them; gasoline was not used at all. Pseudomonas grow well in kerosene TS-1 and T-1 and diesel fuel, and hydrogenated fuel and gasoline B-70. Thus, of all tested microorganisms, only the strain Pseudomonas pyocyaneum can grow in aeronautical gasoline. The intensity of growth of various strains of the same bacteria in the same fuel is not uniform. (Author)
