What keeps biting at me is I have not had a gel problem in 12 years. I have always used the PS white bottle. Thought I had a system down. Say the station filled there tanks with #2, then failed to add anti gel. Would a normal dose of PS white bottle be enough for -10 or below?
Ask around until you find a cashier who knows how cold their diesel was treated for, then stick with that station. If you can't find one who knows how cold their diesel was treated for, then you may be stuck with using the fuel treatment.
