Winter is here and new diesel owners are starting to realize what happens in cold climates where temps dip below 40 deg and stay there for long periods of time. While winter diesel fuel helps with some of this, this is the temp threshold where diesel fuel starts to gel and cause you all kinds of problems.

To help prevent fuel gelling from happening, you should be using a high quality winter fuel additive.

AMSOIL offers several diesel fuel additives with their Cold Flow additive to help with gelling. Their newest of the additives line is the Diesel All-In-One. In recent independent testing, AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One provided as much as 32 deg better protection against gelling vs Howe's Lubricator Diesel Treatment. It also out did Howe's with Cetane value. Not heard of Cetane? Catane is what makes diesel fuel combustible. Federal standards in the US for cetane in fuel is around 44ppm but diesel engines run better with cetane numbers closer to 50. Adding Cetane will help with faster starts, smooth out idles, reduce smoke and emissions just to name a few.

Bottom line. It is recommended that you use a high quality diesel fuel additive regularly. If you choose AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One fuel additive? The recommended dosage is 2oz per 5 gallons of fuel.

If I can help with answering any questions about this or another AMSOIL product, please let me know.
