Solely 2 cycle oil here...

NO... Injector cleaners, cetane booster, anti-gel or anything...

I've been down to -20*F without a single problem...

I'm not worried...

Hey guys, I gotta ressurect this old thread...
I was advised by the Chevy dealer guys NOT to use #1 in my D-max...anyone else been told that? Tow truck driver (Yeah I learned a hard lesson) told me he runs up to 50% #1 when the temp dips down to -20F. I started using Howes and haven't had an issue now in 2000mi of -10F to 32F driving. The STP s*** I bought before because I couldn't find any good stuff and that ended up badly...

I use K100D, never gelled, and its gotten pretty dern cold up here. Our high for tomorrow is 5, with a low of -3, and then comes the wind... Howes is good stuff too, but I'd have to drive all the way out to the truck stop to get it.

Just for information... Here is the Bosch fuel testing that was done in 2002... Also keep in the back of your mind this was back with LSD. And now remember minimum standard is 520 HFRR.

Then the famous additive testing done by DieselPlace.Com

Choose wisely...
