    Makes sence now ...last winter I tanked up at loves in des moines and cold as Billy hell .
    With an isx that returns lots of fuel , next morning in Minnesota with temps around minus 15 i froze up to the point my davco looked like a snowball inside....
    Ran at high rpm parked and came out of it ...flashlight in the tanks showed clouds and wax too .
    Thanks .

    Bio is bad for forming algae also, so keep and eye on black floaters in tanks and at the bottom.
    80% of what I run is bio from ethanol plant I run wdg out of. "Get it at a discount".
    About every three fill up i add a little biocide in my tanks. ( Kleen makes a product).
     
    bzinger and truckdriver31 Thank this.
