 Winter Fuel

I'm going into the first Winter with my 4110. I have a 332 that I push Snow with and have never added anything to my diesel fuel.This year I'm going to use the 4110. Both Tractors are kept in an unheated,Enclosed Pole Barn. Should I not take chances and add something to my fuel? One Guy said to add a small amount of Gasoline????
What should I buy to add to the diesel fuel?
Thanks

Power service has allways been my favorite, but get it in now before it's really cold, it doesn't seem to mix too well when the fuel gets super cold. I've beeen puting a jug in the tank the last couple times before the fuel man comes that way I know it's in the sytems of all the equipment. I've seen the gasoline thing done in a pinch situation to get something going, but it never looked goood to me. Frank.

Gasoline is not what I believe he said but Kerosene! Gas will not assist at all but hinder the way a diesel runs.

Howe's Diesel Fuel Treatment is what Over the road trucks use alot, can be bought in any Truckstop/Fuelstop. 1/2 gal. is approx. $10-11.00 & it tells how to blend , you can get lesser amounts,depending on your fuel usage. It doesn't take much(per directions) & won't hurt your engine.
