Is your fuel ready for the Winter?

Mother nature is wrapping up 2016 with a frigid cold front across the Midwest, signaling a rough winter ahead of us to start the New Year.  Don’t begin 2017 with costly equipment repairs.

Avoid Fuel Gelling

Fuel additives are specifically formulated to keep heavy duty diesel engines performing at their peak.  Once winter approaches, fuel should be treated with an anti-gel additive package, designed to keep your equipment operating in cold temperatures.  If left untreated, fuel has a tendency to gel in winter weather causing unnecessary downtime and possible costly repairs.  Don’t neglect your equipment this winter–make certain your fuel is treated.

Diesel fuel gelling can be costly for both the vehicle and the company.
At 32 degrees, the wax in liquid form will crystallize and leave the fuel tank clouded.  At 10-15 degrees, it will finally start to gel and clog the tank and fuel filters. If you plan now, it will save you later.
