Diesel engines

If the outside temperature is very low, the diesel thickens due to the formation of paraffins and could clog the diesel fuel filter.

In order to avoid these problems, different types of diesel are distributed according to the season: summer type, winter type arctic type (mountains/cold areas).

If refuelling with diesel fuel not suitable for the current temperature, mix diesel fuel with TUTELA DIESEL ART additive in the proportions stated on the can, putting first the antifreeze in the tank and then the diesel fuel.

Refuel with local diesel fuel if the car is used/parked in the mountains or in cold areas for a long period. In this event you are recommended to keep an amount of fuel higher than 50% in the tank.
