I use normal dose PS White. After, I see they recommend double dosing when it is below 0F/-18C. I now do that and haven't had any problems. I also now carry Diesel 911 - just in case.
https://powerservice.com/psp_product...-cetane-boost/ then hit "directions" tab.
"Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost prevents fuel gelling and protects against fuel-filter icing."

Yup I've been going to this Esso station in Whitby.
Weird because the last couple days I haven't been getting the bucking/lurching but it has been warmer. I'm at a half tank.
Yes moving forward I'll be using PS White as well and only running VPower Diesel instead (been told its got highest cetane among all up here from all the additives)

I'll just continue to fill my car, not worry about it and roll the dice
