Ok I am running b20 and I would like to know what additives you would recommend. I see from searching here that I do not need to worry so much about the lubricity but I do need to worry about GELLING & CERITNIE (SP)

I was thinking on using howes but not sure.

thanks joe

Run the Racor or the Power Service (white bottle). Both mix well and help. These are the only ones I have experimented with. I'm quite sure others will work good as well.

I have run Howes and Power Service. I prefer the Power Service (white bottle) over the Howes at this time because it has Cetane where the Howes does not. Just my $.02 worth.

I had the fortune to try it out at -2 deg one morning using the Power Service. It was fine. Put a little in a mason jar with a little Power Service, and put some in another jar with out. Then put them in the freezer and check ever 1/2 hr with a thermometer. See what happens and what the gelling point is.
