    Default Additives...

    Ok nerds. What are you using for a diesel additives?

    I found Diesel Kleen, and will try that, but is there any other things I should consider? I have a good station that semi-trucks use just a few miles away, so I'm good as far as the fuel itself.

    What else?

    I run diesel Kleenex about every other tank. That's it.

    I keep a spare fuel filter in the car when I'm on long trips to Wisconsin in the winter. The D911 will work (eventually), but if the filter gels that can be the biggest PIA to get ungelled in -0 weather.

    If you want any local VCDS / misc TDI help feel free to PM me, Andy. I'm more than happy to assist with TDI related doings.

    We have never run anything through our Jetta.

    But in the pickup we use Ford's brand Cetane booster occasionally (when I remember) and their anti-gel in the winter. We have to be careful since we hardly ever drive the truck, need to check when the last fillup was if we leave it outside if it has the summer gas in it still.

    Usually the gas stations have some signage out that says what dates and temperature the fuel is rated for that they are selling.

    If you are driving this daily I wouldn't overthink it, especially if you are putting it in a garage overnight (even non-heated will stay warmer than outdoors).

    Does it have a block heater?

    Thanks!

    I'll be driving it 3-4 days a week I think, will not be in the garage. No heater either. I'll have to see about getting something going as far as that goes. I swear the PO had one of those coolant based heaters around or something.

    In my neck of the woods, Saint Cloud, both are significantly cheaper at Fleet Farm. Don't know if it would be the same for you, but just a heads up.

    You must have a White bottle of Power Service for days when you know the temperature is going to drop in the future (Add at fuel up). And you MUST have a bottle of Power Service Diesel 911 for the days that catch you off guard and the temperature drops 20 degrees
