You Indiana guys

What oil do you run in the winter? I am running power service now to make up for the ULSD. Will it keep my fuel from jelling in the winter?

I use 15-40 but have never used Power Service and have had no problems.

Ok, I just bought my truck and live up by Chicago and have heard something about the fuel jelling but what is Power Service? I know, total newb here but I don't think I want this jelling thing going on in the Winter! Thanks for your help...

Power Service is the brand name for fuel additive, it comes in a white jug. You can find it at just about any auto parts store, but for a better deal, go to a farm store, like rural king, or Big R
