Now that you have re-thought it, what are you going to do? I grew up in Eveleth so I know how cold it can be up there but the wind down here is something fierce in the winter. I'd way rather have -20f and calm than 0f with a 20mph wind.This video has me re-thinking diesel fuel additives, especially as winter approaches
Which Diesel Anti-Gel Additive is Best? Lets find out! - YouTube
Star-Tron enzyme gas treatment is great stuff, works well for cleaning gum and deposits. I use it for my generators and other 4-stroke carbureted small engines. I think the enzyme diesel additive is the same stuff, only in a more concentrated formula.I've always used Star Tron in my small engines to cure ethanol problems and stabilize fuel. It's been great. Was thinking of using their diesel product. What do you like for your tractors?
I used Howe's as a winter additive because it was what they had at the hardware store, but Howe's came out pretty much at the bottom on that guy's test for lubricity and Arlen Spicer's study from 2007 more-or-less bears out the Howe's relative lack of lubricity, finding the stuff to add little lubricity to the baseline ULSD fuel that he tested against. If true, that's a problem for me since I'm going 70/30 #1/#2, making Howe's supposed lubricity deficit all the more problematic. It did fair on gelling, though, so...I picked up some Stanadyne lubricity additive to add to the Howe's-treated stuff, threw the rest of the Howe's away. For now, I'm going to switch to the Hot Shot's Secret stuff. Absent objective data suggesting a different course.Now that you have re-thought it, what are you going to do?

I snowblowed last winter with my full faced snowmobile helmet. It was the only way I could handle the wind. And that wasn't even the snow dust that was just wind.
