Do you change the grade of fuel you run in the winter time?
It's not usually this cold here in PA, and I have never had a problem before. But, we got a new load of fuel just before winter, No 2 off road. I looked in the tractors manual a couple of months ago and noticed that it recomends that you run No 1 at temps below 39F.
In any case, I've had some problems with the tractor misfiring. I've tried all kinds of things. Thought maybe it was sucking air, but no evidence. At my fathers suggestion, I added about a quart of Kerosene to six gallons of diesel. So far that has fixed the problem.
At what temp do you have problems with fuel gelling? Also I was wondering if it had something to do with the fuel, like maybe a bad load or something.
If I can find some, I want to try the Lucas oil products cold weather treatment. I've heard good things about their stuff, and the advertisement states that it won't gell to -30F. Anybody try this stuff?
Thanks for you advise.
