I am getting ready to head up to the oil fields in North Dakota. The projected high is going to be -13 degrees and a low of -24 degrees. I am concerned about having problems with my diesel fuel system gelling or freezing. I use the recommended fuel winter treatment now in Iowa and plug my block heater in at night and haven't had a problem. The weather I'm heading to is much colder. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
Just keep doing what your already doing and maybe switch oil weight, I think you will be fine. These 6.7's have a good rep. for cold weather starting. One other thing you might want to do is add silicone to your door strips/moldings to avoid pulling them off when opening your doors.
