Re: 2014 ecodiesel heat fuel?

That's impressive. You didn't even plug the Jeep in to 120V? I live just across the border in WI and have the same temps as you so this is nice to know. I have a heated garage I keep my Jeep in though. Thanks for the info.

I was a little nervous when it got that low, but did not have access to plug it in while at work. Hopefully this winter is more kind to us, but so far it is starting out with a bang. -1 here tonight.

Re: 2014 ecodiesel heat fuel?

I had no issues last winter as well. I can't plug in at work and there were many nights where it was -10F to -15F. Like Shannon said, the remote start gets iffy really low, I think it didn't start on me once.

For piece of mind I added XDP Polar-D which is an anti-gel/cetane booster during the winter and never had an issue. Our pumps run #2 from November to March.

Similar situation with me, cold winter last year routinely colder than -25F. Only issue was the remote start. Heated seats and steering wheel was a blessing.

Re: 2014 ecodiesel heat fuel?

The worst case that Ive seen for cold starting was when I went to test drive an ecodiesel. It did not snow here ofor about 2 weeks and the temps did not go higher than -15 degree c, and the sales person got into the jcg and it started with only one crank. As I said it did not snow but the jcg was under about a foot of snow, so it did not move for a while.

Exactly. YOu are not running number 2 at -26 even if it was running. It would gel up and stop running. Your winter blend is a mix of number 1 and number 2. I believe it all depends on location on how much of a mix it is. FUrther north, more number 1 in the mix. Up here in ak, its straight number 1.

Uh, I guess it pays to check. I stopped at a BP in Nebraska the other day and the attendant was quite positive that what was dispensed was straight #2 and not a winter blend. At another station a few miles down the road the attendant said their auto diesel pump dispensed straight #1, which is totally unnecessary there. I refueled at the next station where the attendant had never heard of winter blend and mumbled something about #2 in the pump.
