1. Don’t wait till the first cold snap to prepare for cold weather

  2. The easiest way to help minimize cold weather issues is to make sure your fuel system is as dry as possible

  3. Remove any free water from the bottom of fuel tanks, in equipment and storage.

  4. Change fuel filters during every oil change

    1. The most common cause of cold weather issues is filter icing, not fuel gelling

    2. Manufacturers have had to put 2 micron retention filters on all equipment in order to have cleaner fuel to injector system

    3. Injector systems produce higher pressures in order to reduce stack emissions. These systems do not tolerate water in fuel or gelled fuel

  5. If you can buy from a fuel source that tests for cold filter fuel plug points

  6. Fuels from different sources react to additives differently. We routinely test diesel samples from various sources to determine the fuel that provides the best cold-weather performance.
