It’s started. The snow. The cold. The slick roads. The chilling chore of putting on chains at midnight as the weather closes in.
Yes, there’s no denying the toughest season for truckers is here. Despite what the calendar says, winter’s arrived in some parts of the U.S.
Fortunately, there is a long and effective roster of essential additives like those produced by Howes to help you fight back. The company makes additives to prevent problems, and also some that can get you out of trouble if things get too cold and you get sidelined.
Howes Diesel Treat prevents gelling, adds lubricity, safely removes water, and boosts fuel economy. It does all of that without alcohol or solvents, which means it’s warranty safe for all diesel emission systems. The company adds that Diesel Treat also corrects problems inherent in today’s ULSD fuel, and eliminates smoking and rough idle. Available in 15, 32, and 64-ounce sizes.
If you do find yourself with a temperature-induced emergency, there’s Howes Diesel Lifeline. Fast-acting, easy to use, and alcohol-free, Lifeline reliquifies gelled fuel, deices frozen fuel filters, and prevents fuel filter icing down to -35 degrees to get you rolling again in about 15 minutes. Lifeline is warranty safe and effective in all diesel and biodiesel fuels. It requires no mixing or fuel filter changes. Available in 32 and 64-ounce sizes.
These and other Howes products are available at travel centers and most big box stores.
