Diesel Addatives?

11692 Views 34 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  turbobrick240
Say, I always kept a small box with several screw top jars of addative in it I'd use every fill up. 2 oz. summer and 4 in winter. Anybody have advice or suggestions regarding this practice?

I have to say that gelling is not something that you should ever have to worry about if you are buying proper winterized diesel. I have never run additives in my TDI's and made it through a very hard winter last year with many 0F and lower nights and no problems. Car was parked out side all winter.

The only times i have heard of gelling is when people buy diesel in a warm climate that doesn't sell winterized fuel and then drive north of to high elevations and endd up below freezing with the fuel.
