Whether or not it’s the sulphur content is irrelevant. The new ULSD fuel causes all kinds of problems that Low Sulfur Diesel fuel did not. Before ULSD I bet we hadn’t spent $100 on diesel anti gel in our farm’s history. Now it takes thousands of dollars in wasted fuel filters and anti gel just trying to get through the winter to feed cows every year. We don’t even live in an area where it gets below zero Fahrenheit every year. Something is certainly different. 

Must be your fuel supplier, I haven’t used any anti gel of course we just go with blended fuel in the winter but have had no issues although the reduction of paraffins and aromatics has made the fuel drier than it used to be.

I don’t live in an area where No. 1 diesel is widely available, but it never was. I’ve bought diesel from everyone who sells it here because so many people have told me it has to be my supplier. The first time it gets cold here every parts store will be sold out of every diesel conditioner because so many people are buying it. When it gets really cold cold we have to cut it with kerosene. We never used to have to do that. We don’t buy on road diesel from the same place as of road and neither one will work reliably anymore without kerosene when it’s really cold.

The injection/pump shop that I used until they closed the doors recommended the Stanadyne supplement. Said the ULSD was very dry. Figured they probably would know what they were talking about as they were seeing the pumps and injectors from lots of older equipment. How do you know if it is working or not? Have not had any injection system issues that I can blame on fuel. Do have a couple of pumps that need looked at but they have enough hours on them to warrant attention. Have not had any issues during the winter and have run nothing but #2.
