Fuel filter is only two months old with about 1k miles on it. How do you figure there is a difference in fuel between seasons?

Its a known fact that they thin down the diesel in the winter for gelling reasons. Thats why in the winter you hear everyone complain about low mileage and whatnot. If the filter is ok Id check the Fuel Pressure Regulator screen next
