Winter blend diesel!!! SUCKS

I guess we changed to winter blend diesel here in texas. I was able to get 18+ mpg on the highway. Sometimes up to 22 on the highest tune if i kept my foot out of it. Now im lucky to break 15 on the highway. I drive about 50+ miles daily. Why does winter diesel get such poor economy???

That stuff pisses me off too! I am going to switch to the winter blend additive on my next fill up, that helps a little bit. I think that the anti-geling additive they put in it hurts economy some.
