  Yes, in TX that would be likely but if you're not in such a humid climate
it's likey just fine.  When we pulled Dad's pickup out for the TD transplant,

it'd been parked for about 10 years it turned out!  The exhaust smelled like
old fuel but no water, no algae.  It takes water to get algae AFIK.  In many
diesel rigs over 30 years we've only had algae in Dad's 300D and that was
soon after he got it so it was most likely already there.
