How to keep your truck running freely in winter
Whenever in the winter,some users may feel quite headache to start their trucks ,because once they wake up and always found the fuel is gelled in the cold weather! How did that happen? Diesel fuel gets gelled in cold temperature just because it includes paraffin which is added to improve fuel viscosity and lubrication.
When the temperature gets lower, paraffin was thickens and turns into a cloudy mixture. This is the so-called “diesel fuel gelling”. When the fuel is in this condition, the fuel will no longer flow, basically leading the engine to become useless.
Diesel fuel gelling has the possibility to happen when the temperature drop below the fuel freezing point. Due to the different ingredient of diesel fuel, the fuel in each country might have different freezing point. Take China for example, ‘5 diesel fuel is recommended to be used in temperature over 8 degree. ‘0 diesel fuel is recommended to be used in 4~8 degree.
