The degrading activities of selected bacterial strains and their associations directed towards fuel oil and diesel fuel in liquid media were studied. Two-member associations composed preferably by Rhodococcus and Pseudomonas strains demonstrated the highest degrading efficiencies. No enhancement was achieved when the number of association members was increased to three, four, or five strains. The population stability of any member strain was found to depend on the association composition.
