    17.5 °F is not your friend. 3 °F today must not have been a lot of fun!

    I do plug her in at night, but it was around -12 with wind chill. I switched diesel additive brand today. I needed: Diesel 911, 2 bottles of Anti-Gel, 1 electric heat gun, 2 new batteries, 3 cans of starting fluid, and 1 heavy duty wrecker to tow my flatbed into a heated body shop building to warm her up.

    My brand new 14 cummins wouldnt run the other day it said -21 here in eastern ky. It would start then die i think the urea /epa cow pee crap froze and so did my fuel. Even my dads old school 5.9 cummins quit after he drove too town.

    Biodiesel is worse! Glad to be out of that situation, but not driving her on Sundays (If it stays like this cold) might not be an option.

    Seems some of you need to warm up.

    Got to 60f today in Los Angeles, tossed on the thermal top and dealt with it. :manganr:

    It gets pretty damned cool up here.

    I used to run 20% Regular Gas in with the Diesel rather than use those shitty additives.

    Less smoke; more power.
