I GOT YOUR FIRE FOR YA!!
Like every thing in life the answer is IT DEPENDS!! For the most part cetane boosters are not needed but in the past some parts of the country had issues with low centane (wisconsin area was one if I remember right). Additives like anti-gel are great to have around in the fall or if you get a unexpected cold snap 30-40 degrees lower then normal temps in the winter. Remember fuel is blended for the temps your area is expected to see, a truck filled in Aug may jell in November. Real cold air intakes work ask any pilot (carb heat decreases RPM by 100 or more). Non of my Diesel fuel sits long enough for a stabilizer but the mogas does, I use Sta-bul for all my gas engines that sit for 7 mo over the winter. For the most part I just fill and go but I keep some snake oil handy for appropriate times or emergencies.
I think most of the effects seen from the COLD AIR intakes are simply from improved airflow. The HP numbers are usually noted at redline and how many of us run at redline all day long?
That is the type of solid information we need!! Please do post the info after the summer.
