Now that winter is upon us (not enough to plow though), I have a question concerning diesel fuel. At what temperature with diesel fuel begin to gel? We've owned a diesel tractor since 1977 The Satoh that is my avatar at the moment) and have never had this happen so I don't know that it will even be an issue in my neck of the woods. This year I will be relying on a diesel for the first time in many years so I need to know if I should treat the fuel to prevent this or not. Chances are I'll wait till it warms up a little before plowing if I can but, given the fact I have no back up plow anymore and the neighbors rely on me, I figured I better ask the question.
I just got all 4 chains and the new plow on the Massey yesterday. The plow just came in late last week. That plow is a beast! I gotta get me some weight on the back of that tractor. Yes, I'll post a pic of it in its winter clothes as soon as I can get one.
