When parking a unit for more than 12hrs, please execute the following action items if the lows reach the ranges below:

  1. 21 degrees and warmer-Do nothing
  2. Between 11-20 degrees- The truck must be plugged in and started every 24hrs were applicable. Please run the tractor for 15-30 minutes, then shut down.
  3. Ten degrees and colder- The truck must be plugged in and started every 12hrs. Please run the tractor for 15-30 minutes, then shut down.

When the temperature has the potential to dip below 20 degrees, anti-gel must be added to the fuel:

  1. Anti-gel can be obtained at any truck stop
  2. 16ounce bottle per tank added before filling up. Products like Penray and Power Service are common in truck stops.
  3. (1 bottle/tank fully fueled)
