RE: trawler needing to be towed from Boca Del Toro, Panama to Colon, Panama & DD 453's replaced

IN regards to the bad or contaminated fuel does anyone have experience with this product or have any faith in it.
STARTRON Diesel Fuel cleaner. Expensive but well worth the effort before other methods. It is an yeast/enzyme that destroys algae, water and contaminants in fuel tanks in 24 hours with no or little residue. Use as directed. It is similar to the product they use to clean up oil spills, oil in bilges, etc. Not a chemical, but living organisms. Available at West Marine.

I was wondering if I get one motor running enough and bring a case or so of racor filters could enough of this stuff return the fuel to a usuable condition to make trip to Colon from Bocas
