The Weather outside is frightful! Is your fleet ready?

Posted by John Presti on Jan 3, 2012 3:37:00 PM

Hey, where’s the snow? And where is the cold New England weather? This time last year, it seems a week didn’t go by without dumping a foot or two of snow.

Is your fleet ready for winter? 

Preparation is very important during the winter months. Our fleets have to be running as efficiently in the winter as they do in the summer. Checking tire pressures, double-checking your walk arounds, and keeping your windshield wash full, are all key steps in starting to have a safe day.

 What about fuel additives? If you’re not buying winterized diesel, you might want to keep plenty of anti-gel (pro­active) and thaw fluid (re-active) in your inventory for any freeze-ups that could occur. You should always check with your fuel provider what the fuel’s cloud point is at the time of purchase.


Key Terms for Winter Fuel

 Cloud point

All diesel fuel and heating oil contain wax, which contributes to the fuel's lubricity characteristics.

 Cloud Point is the temperature at which wax crystals in the fuel begin to form. The fuel becomes visually cloudy.



Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) is the temperature at which wax crystals in the fuel will start plugging up a fuel filter.

Pour Point

Pour Point is the temperature at which the fuel starts to become a semi-solid and loses its ability to flow or pour.


Dennis K Burke is one of the leading distributors for winterized products, such as kerosene, fuel additives, cold-weather hydraulic oil, and windshield wash. Need help choosing the right product? Contact me at (857) 241-9678 or
