Diesel fuel in winter for new 1026R

8089 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Brian
Just wondering what is best (in this part of eastern Nebraska, typically out moving snow in 15-25 degree temperatures):
1. Just use #2 diesel
2. Use #2 with an additive, or perhaps with kerosene or gasoline added?
3. Use only #1 diesel in winter (I guess it will be available somewhere... )

In terms of starting the tractor, I had the dealer install a tank heater before I took delivery... so, starting will not be an issue (if the fuel will run).

Am not used to operating a diesel in the winter... been moving snow with gasoline! Any suggestions on how best to "manage" the diesel fuel for the 1026R will be appreciated!

I second that on the Power Service 911, it is dangerous stuff it will make your engine run very hot.
