    Default Winter blend - What's the ratio?

    Normally I'd time it to run out of fuel about the time the stations start offering winter blend at the pumps. However, I have a 5 gallon jug of #2 left over from this summer. I can get #1 from the local truck stop and mix my own winter blend. My only question is, what's the typical ratio for a Minnesota climate? Oh, I normally throw in a dose of Power Service for good measure.

    My other option is to just keep the #2 on the shelf until sping and go pick up the pre-mixed winter blend.
