Eagle River and especially Fairbanks can get pretty cold. My personal Alaska record was -38 in Wasilla. Brother lives in Eagle River so I've been up there a lot. Everything he drives is plugged in during the winter. I would definitely be running an additive like PS or Optilube XPD, and carrying some PS 911 with me. I run the heated version of the FASS Titanium since the weather gets pretty cold here as well. I don't take any chances on fuel gelling. I've had too many bad experiences trying to get frozen equipment and vehicles to start in the winter. Miserable work under bad conditions. Hate using ether and don't like that hammering sound when they finally do start. It seems that winter exploits every weakness in your vehicle.
