Even though 140 probably would be ok I wouldn't be comfortable with that VO temp. It should be at least 160 IMHO.
Something is not right with your system if you are only getting 140 VO temp at 30 degrees. I have run VO in MUCH colder temps & had no problem maintaining 170 VO temp. Of course I had to wait longer before I switched over.
To insure that my VO stays hot enough I added a 203 T-stat, aux coolant pump, TIH fuel lines, insulated the fuel lines, 20 plate FPHE plumbed just before the heads & winter front.
I have never had to switch back to D2 or run a winter mix. IMHO that should not be necessary.
Boise is your fuel system deadhead or regulated return??
