    I think, if you continue looking into it, you'll find your skepticism unwarranted.

    The Irving refinery is right on the coast in St. John, New Brunswick, I imagine they just float the fuel down to Portsmouth by tanker. Citgo has recently expanded into my area, I was mostly wondering if it was their fuel.

    I've been thinking about getting one of these to wrap around my truck's fuel filters: Kat's 24050 50 Watt 2"x 5" Universal Hot Pad Heater : Amazon.com : Automotive Could easily swap it over to a tractor filter in a pinch using a small bungee or elastic band.

    Not that important...As a former SeaRiver (Exxon) guy, I know they all cheated a little

    Yup, not bad in a pinch... I think I can actually slide a large hot cup of water under my filter if needed

    First rule... Never trust Irving.. the cheap SOB's.

    Secondly, treat all your fuel. Personally I use PSwhite, but once this bottle is done, Im going to another brand. I had a major gelling issue myself this year .

    I ended up installing a better fuel filter (Racor) that handles water much better than the stock inline filter. I have not had a gelling or waxing issue since and the temperature has been way colder. http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/k...lter-bx25.html

    I got my tractor back home by a " laying on of hands" one time. Wrapped my bare hands around the filter till the engine evened out and made a run for it!

    Quite true! But it sure does help it to start in the cold if the fuel isn't gelled.

    Thanks. It was money well spent. The factory filtration is severely lacking.

Mine lives inside garage on a carpet even, but I don't want to take any chances especially when it's so easy to avoid.
