You should aks the people that you buy your diesel from. Do they do like the northern US and Canada? mix it with 'kerosene/parafin', or do they mix other additives to prevent waxing and jelling. If they do nothing to the fuel because they do not think it will get cold enought to need it, then you should mix about 10-20% parafin/lamp oil/ kerosene, whatever it is callled where you are. Maybe not petrol/gasoline in a newer/modern diesel engine. By the way, -20C is about 0 F, 40F is about +5C, a diesel 'should' start well above +2C... as I continue to have big problems,with home heat aswell as vehicles, I find that worldwide, diesel is not guaranteed to ignite less than that. If the local company doesn't treat it, the user must.Good luck and stay warm!
