From 15 November so-called winter diesel will be available at the pumps. It contains additives that limit the formation of paraffin crystals that would otherwise block the fuel filter. Drivers of diesel-fuelled vehicles should should heed the following advice: Fill up with winter diesel well before the winter cold sets in. That way there will be hardly any summer or transitional diesel left in the tank. Always follow the instructions in the manufacturer’s service manual especially regarding the interval between changing fuel filters.
