There are 2 issues with additives, 1.fuel gelling in sub freezing weather and 2. fuel pump issues with lubricity . Most northern fuel is treated after a certain date for anti gelling,so unless you are in extreme conditions like sub zero for a long time you are probably ok. The lubricity is always an issue,so you can be lucky and not have a problem or buy insurance like the additives mentioned an hopefully no blow up the HPFP. I prefer insurance myself. 3 TDIs and no issues for the past 10yrs.
