Other times it's the station adding the additive themselves to #2. If it's a blend, is it really 60/40 going into your tank when they added to existing 100% #2? Did they put enough additive in for 8,000 gallons??? I have personally added additive from 5gal buckets.
Do you trust your truck in the winter to somebody making $10 an hour??? A winter fuel additive is cheap insurance for a $60,000 rig. Our work trucks we run stanadyne from late October to early april. In addition, I will top off with #1 when a cold snap is forecasted. I damn sure don't want to gel up in the middle of nowhere with no cell service and -25F with -40 chill factor. Nope nope nope.
Canada only has one diesel fuel.
I get confused every time i used to go to the states with my Mercedes.
