We get pre-treated diesel delivered to out shop, and haven't had any trouble. You probably would be better getting some diesel anti-gel or ice-breaker type stuff - I think Stanadyne is one company that makes it. The kero would probably work (we used to do stuff like that when we ran home heating through the loaders), but why risk it with the turbo and the direct inject. You can buy the treatment cheap enough.<p><p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply - http://members.aol.com/slsnursery<br>Ivy League Landscaping - http://members.aol.com/scagrider

I echo this thread from Phil. The stynadyne additive is very good, and it wouldnt hurt to run it all the time, will lenthen the life of the injector pump. Replaces some of the lubricity of the fuel due to the low sulpher content.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org
