Determination of Cold Weather Fuel Operability
There are various means used to predict how a diesel fuel will function in cold temperatures. There are various means used to theoretically predict whether a particular diesel fuel will function properly when used at reduced ambient temperatures. Some of these methods are "good predictors" and some are not. The following describes the most widely used testing techniques to assist fuel marketers and fuel users. (continued)
