I own a 1990 ford f350 with the 7.3 idi (not that this really matters).
My question is for all the diesel owners out there, as I am relatively new to the diesel thing. I live up here in the great state of Montana and currently we are experiencing temperatures in the single digits and teens. Ive heard nightmare stories about diesel fuel gelling in tanks and filters and now that I own one I’ve done some more research. Nobody seems to have a straight answer so I want your opinion. This is a several part question.
Is anti-gel still relevant for diesel tanks today or does the “winter mix” fuel solve any problems I would have?
What is the “golden temp” I should watch for when I should start worrying about adding anti-gel to my tank?
What brands do you like? Any I should stay away from?
Thanks for all the help!!
