Summer fuel in winter

I have a full tank of summer fuel in 6.5 94' Suburban. I'm I ok to just add winter Diesel Kleen? Set up for plowing now and won't run enough to use up the fuel. Thanks in advance.

You could do that. What lowest temps are you expecting it to run in? Unblended D2 should have no problems down to 20F or even lower. If it were me I wouldn't put any additives, just some D1 or kerosene as they are virtually the same thing. Winter blends around here are basically D2 mixed with D1 (kerosene).

Thanks for the reply. I am in Kansas City and temps usually in the teens-but the dreaded zero at times. Just don't want to let jell.

Make sure you put some biocide in the tank if you have not done so.

It should be fine down to 0, if you add something with a anti-gel additive, it will help make up the difference between the winter blend
