Diesel fuel in low temperature will "turn to gello" next time (all time ) in winter you should usePower System Diesel Fuel Supplement Plus Cetane Boost (check auto parts store) Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement Plus Cetane Boost with an Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) antigel formula prevents fuel gelling, keeps injectors clean and boosts cetane for faster cold starts.
