Preparing for the Cold Weather Ahead!

by Oct 28, 2020Idealease, News, Safety, Truck Driver Safety

We are now in Fall and now is the time to start preparing your operation for the cold weather ahead. Your drivers should be aware of what is required to keep their truck running during the winter months ahead.

Fuel additives to prevent jelling should be added anytime the ambient temperature is below 32. Power Service and Penray are popular manufactures of fuel additives and both companies have two different products available through Navistar and Idealease locations.

Power Service:

  • The “Red Bottle” is Power Service 911 and is to be used ONLY when the fuel in a unit has been jelled.
  • 911 is NOT to be used as a fuel additive that you would regularly put in the fuel tank to keep the fuel from jelling.
  • Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement + Cetane “White Bottle” is to be added to the fuel at each fill when the ambient temperature is < 30 degreesF.
  • This is the additive you should use on a regular basis during the winter months.
