Good to hear that Lightflyer1. I tend to use Kroger fuel. No signs of BD so I had a few ounces of diesel additive just in case.

Looking at pour point and clouding ... Glad I skipped the "winter additive" and just said screw it fuel is already winterized, use a regular summer additive with max cetane and lubricity no need to pay for more anti gel.

Though I did add some white bottle when we had that November cold snap.

Its funny. Some third world countries have higher fuel standards than the US. I guess those countries are more interested in whats best for the community and the US is more worried about diluting the fuel as much as possible to yeild the highest profit margin for the producers.
