Thanks everyone for your replies. What youíre saying makes sense. I was under the impression that once the fuel turned into wax crystals that it would take high heat and lots of time to thaw. The reason why I'm asking is because I live in the high desert (7,000 feet) where night time temperatures drop down real low but the day time temperatures go right back up.
Hereís the norm:
Fall (+15 t0 +30ís for the Night LOW and +60ís to +70ís for the Day HIGH
Winter (-20 to +20) for the Night LOW and +30ís t0 +50ís for the Day HIGH
Spring (+20ís to +30ís for the Night LOW and +60ís to +70ís for the Day HIGH
I'm trying to decide if I should start adding a fuel additive with our night tempersatures dropping into the +20's.

Up here it will start to gel about -40, it's pretty much make sure the truck was plugged in, you used antigel and let the truck circulate fuel for about 15min+ before driving it.
The nice thing with the fuel canister is you can pull the top off and add some antigel into it instead of waiting for it to try to make it's way through the tank pump and to the engine which will only work if it's warmer and you don't kill the battery trying to start it.

Very true; however, I only run enough biodiesel to help with lubricity (B2).
I run B20 all the time, I only run antigel when the temp drops below 32 degrees. Ive done this for years and been ok so far. On a side note I have only gelled up once, and that was when the temp was -10 through -20 with a windchill of -30, I left the truck unplugged as usual in the driveway but didnt drive it for a week and I had standadyne antigel in the tank, truck gelled up and wouldnt run.
