Don't know about up North, but last winter we had over a foot droped on SW VA in one hit, bunch of smaller storms too. I've never plugged any of my diesels in, just use fuel treatment to keep from gelling.

no experience with propane here, we use a wood stove to heat our house

and I don't plug my truck in either. I drive it everyday so I don't feel the need to. But I do let it warm up for a good 20 minutes in the morning.

welcome to VA. up there where you're going i'd say you stand a better chance of snow than i do down here in central VA (hour south of richmond).

i plug my truck up when it really dips down cold (like 25 or less). not really because i HAVE to, but because its just nice to walk outside and the windshield be clear or mostly clear atleast. like someone else said...get you some addative or a cetane boost w/anti gel agent and you should be just fine.

Yep that's what I use. Its like 5 or 10 bucks for a quart I think...but if u mix it generously it'll last a while.
