Iíve run the tractor at around 0* - any colder than that I donít need to be out there.

Hi All - I was over at the Mobil station today getting milk and asked the manager if he had records of the last diesel delivery. He went in back and came back a few minutes later and said it was a 50:50 mix and The prior delivery was 70:30.
Does that sound about right for an area that has already had sub zero temps and snow on the ground?

I tried to find a chart showing the various gel points, but it appears that it is so variable by fuel supplier that there is none available. The best I could come up with is that #1 diesel is good down to about -40 degrees, but #2 diesel can be problematic starting in the +20s. Adding the right supplements can lower gel points even further. I sympathize with you hardy people living up north, but not enough for me to visit you, let alone live there. Even this far south, I insist on having a cab on my tractor.

Itís not a big issue if you do it right. The biggest issues are people that turn less the a tank a month. The additive of your choice blended with seasonal blend make it work.
I had a trouble duramax truck that might have issues a -5, found the block heater and I was good to -20. The fuel filter was the issue. If it didnít fire on second spin I had to pump the fuel primer. It was the key until-25. Even after starting and warming it would only do 1/8 throttle without stalling. -25 is a daily low, but the truck recovered sitting in sun, my 430 yanmar did fire off and run strong even if the garage never warms.
