Extremely Cold Temperatures and Your Fleet

January 04, 2018

2018 has already brought a deep arctic freeze, which can really impact your fleet. As a matter of fact, 90% of all winter operability issues are moisture related. Maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicles keep moving. Monitor your water separators daily and change your fuel filters often.

In addition to good housekeeping practices, pay attention to the fuel you are purchasing. Will your fuel perform as expected based on the temperature of the region you’re in? Diesel Direct uses a blending strategy based on the ambient temperature and our truck route location data. We customize a blend tailored to our customer’s needs.

For extreme winter weather, we also offer a diesel fuel emergency treatment called Winter’z Edge. Winter’z Edge is a diesel fuel additive that helps melt frozen fuel filters, returns fuel to a liquid state and helps disperse water. It can be used in diesel fuel trucks, construction equipment, generators, skid tanks and other large ground tanks. Learn more about Winter’z Edge: dieseldirect.com/winterz-edge/
