i'm not currently running a fuel additive... and my fuel filter is new as of May.

the prefilter still looks good too.

do i need to start running additive?

all winter? what do the newer diesels do?


also good idea on the sitting voltage test... that much is easy enough to accomplish.

i know the alternator itself works fine... i know the idle output isn't going to be the best... i'll have to check about the possibility of a phantom... but he's been fine all year...

CATIA is a dirty tramp, until you figure out its sweet spots, and how to make it moan. Then its easy as apple pie on a fall afternoon.
