V10 Fuel Additive

I live in MN. So six months of the year it is winter. I ordered a V10 and was curious if the fuel that is available will work in these cold months. Does anyone use an additive and if so whats good?

Yes, provided you buy Diesel fuel #1, which normally sold during winter months in areas with cold winters. DF#1 is formulated to prevent icing and gelling, which Diesel is prone to do when temperatures drop below freezing.

During summer months and in warm climates Diesel fuel #2 should only be used or you risk damaging your engine. DF#2 doesn't generate as high EGT (exhaust gas temp.) as #1 does.

Diesel #1

Having a tough time finding DF #1. Not very many stations selling it. If I use DF #2 in the winter but use an additive will this be OK? Is there any difference in performance with the fuels or using additives?
