I don't know what they do to the winter fuel here but our trucks sit outside in the mid -60f range sometimes and have never gelled. Would have thought your fuel would be the same Cat.

Our fuel doesnt gel either.....IF they put the additives in it, Around here they like to charge for it, but dont put it in unless its cold and what happened here is the temp was almost a steady 60* and dropped into the singles in 2 days. Either way after a certain date stations should be treating their fuel

Yeah I know there suppose to treat the fuel here too. And we just got this cold snap. It's been decent warm right around zero cellophane the past three weeks. And today it dropped to this minus 25 crap.

So the guy backed out of buying my truck due to lack of funds. Due to that my stepdad decided to go to the bank with me to get the money we need to get this house. Long story short I'M KEEPING MY TRUCK!

We don't have the choice here. Usually beginning of October all diesel is winter treated and stays that way till spring. Price is the same but you burn way more of it.

Correct and it makes less power also. When I trucked in canada I ran straight #1, which I am sure your blend is heavy heavy #1, to make sure I didnt have problems at -50*

That's funny cause when I trucked in the states I always carried additive and dumped a bunch in before I got too far North on the way back to avoid problems. Tried to roll back into Canada on low tanks so I could fuel up ASAP. Fuel was cheaper in the states so most guys did it opposite to that. Personally I would rather pay a little more for fuel than gel up in the middle of nowhere.
