Winter Fuel Program

Winter Additization Program

As we approach the colder months ahead, we wanted to share with you the steps Love’s has taken to protect your fleet this winter season. Our exclusive Cold Weather Program ensures that Love’s diesel fuel delivers the industry’s highest level of quality and cold weather performance.

Love’s works with Afton Chemical to deliver an exclusive Cold Weather Program that includes the use of detergent, cold flow and deicer fuel additives, to protect your fuel system all winter long. We start our Cold Weather Program early in the season when temperatures are approaching 32°F to offer you more complete protection. Our program runs until the average temperature is above freezing or later if required, so you can be assured that throughout the entire winter, Love’s Quality Fuel will deliver the most advanced protection to keep your tractors operating smoothly without costly downtime.

Some of the most common questions we receive with regard to our winter program include:

Q: What performance does Love’s’ Cold Weather Program deliver?
A: The Love’s’ Cold Weather Program involves several activities to ensure you experience the highest level of quality. Our program includes:

  • Extensive fuel tank maintenance throughout the year to prevent damage to your fuel system caused by moisture and microbial growth
  • Detergent additives to clean and protect your fuel system, while also optimizing biodiesel performance in cold months to prevent gelling
  • Cold flow and deicer fuel additives that help delay natural #2 diesel gelling in cold months and chemically alter the fuel to improve fuel flow and reduce filter plugging
  • Industry leading tiered additive treatment, with 3X additive use starting at 10°F

Q: Which stores are included in the Cold Weather Program?

Q: How does Love’s know how much additive to use?
A: We work directly with Afton Chemical to test fuel samples throughout the winter to identify the proper amount of additive to use to protect your fuel system. The additives used in Love’s exclusive formulation undergo extensive no-harms testing, in addition to real world cold weather performance testing to help protect you from fuel line freezing, gelling, and fuel filter plugging.

Q: Should I be concerned about winter biodiesel?
A: Love’s maintains an extensive network of stores throughout the United States, with advanced injection equipment to allow for optimized and responsible use of biodiesel. This network allows Love’s to quickly react to rapidly changing weather by increasing or decreasing the amount of biodiesel available at a particular store. In addition, Love’s uses an exclusive detergent formulation to optimize the cold weather performance of biodiesel, delivering peace of mind that you are always receiving the highest quality fuel to protect your fuel system.
