Should be good as long as there is no #1. They claim Howes makes #1 fuel gel easier.

I'm new to the 6.7, but a few weeks ago we had -15 deg F at night with a high of -2 deg. I used White Power Service and fuel from the truck stop (#2 treated) and it fired just fine. I've started my old Dmax at -18 on pump fuel plus White Power Service and didn't have any gelling issues. She wasn't happy, but she did fire on the first try. I've seen guys in Canada fire up in those temps a lot of the time.

if you guys in the northern U.S get the same fuel we do in Canada you have nothing to worry about. i'm in Manitoba north of N.D and M.N and have never had gelling issues. I use white ps some of the time. I use it more for lubricating than gelling. It's if I remember to buy it type of thing. but we hit regular -30 to -40 from late November to late feb. allot of guys up here have diesels with no issues. from what I have seen, winter diesel gelling is a thing of the past. unless the U.S and Canada have a different standard.I'm of course no diesel expert,but I know cold!!

In Vermont only had -2 but still left it in the heated garage. Suppose to be 5 during the days and -8 at night

Will leaving it in a heated garage with a half of tank of treated fuel cause condensation?

Coldest weather we've had in Maine (at least the part where I live) was -27* about 3 weeks ago. At that point I hadn't decided on an additive so I had straight diesel...truck started on the first try and ran fine after running a little rough for the first 10-15 sec. I do use an additive now, but like others have said, more for lubrication than anything. I have a theory that fresh fuel filters in the fall will help with fuel related issues during the winter.
