Filled up the old girl with summer diesel late August/early September, and some lubricity additive meant for summer.
Overseas trip return got delayed, got back to a hard freeze of a consistent -41 between Christmas & New Years.
Started, idled for a minute, then died. Nothing came out of the water separator drain.
Dumped a quart of Diesel 911 in the tank, left overnight, pointed the Webasto exhaust at the fuel filter canister, and set the Webasto timer for 60 or 120 minutes the next morning, had warmed up to a pleasant -40.
With a couple of injector nuts cracked open for a few seconds, she fired right up without the grids cycling, the coolant temperature was at around 135 after the Webasto cycle.
Idled her for 30 minutes, went for a couple 200 mile drives & refilled the 3/4 tank used up with winter diesel & a double dose of Schaeffer's AllSeason with deicer/antigel SoyShield.
R12.5z in the summer, Webasto in the winter; cassette tapes & SAE-20078.5z all year.
