Drivers of diesel vehicles know that special steps need to be taken to prepare diesel engines for inactivity during the winter. Marine diesel engines and stationary diesel are most likely to fall into these categories. Road diesel that runs during the winter doesn't need the same diesel service (but do require certain types of fuel treatment to winterize the fuel for cold weather). Ask a diesel repair technician for professional advice to protect the investment you have made in your truck so that it will last as long as possible.

There are a number of things you can do to keep your diesel engine running to its full potential during the cold winter months ahead:

  • Winter Fuel Additive: In cold temperatures, the paraffin wax that makes up a portion of the diesel fuel mixture has the tendency to thicken, potentially advancing to the point where it can plug the fuel filter, preventing the engine from running at all. Adding a winter fuel additive to your diesel fuel tank works to alter the temperature point at which gelling occurs. Some winter fuel additives also work to clean out fuel filters, remove deposits from fuel injectors and improve a vehicle's cold starting.
    Fuel Storage: Store your vehicle or engine in a heated area during the winter months. Gelling typically occurs when a fuel tank has been sitting dormant for a period of time. Storing the tank in a heated garage or warehouse can prevent this from occurring.
    Add kerosene: Kerosene has the same effect as a winter fuel additive--lowering the plug point temperature of the diesel fuel to prevent gelling. Gas stations in the Northern regions of the United States sell diesel fuel with kerosene already in it for this reason. Diesel fuel gelling not only harms your engine but also your productivity. With a little bit of expert diesel service, it can easily be prevented.

Winterizing your diesel engine should not be ignored, but it does take a bit of conscious effort, saving you time and money down the road by preventing problems and major repairs.
