Howdy Dale,
I didn’t plan to use salt.
My understanding is it’s only good down to about -6 degrees Fahrenheit at the water saturation point.
That may or may not work for me when traveling.

Howdy Sky,
I was aware of the Power Service Diesel 911 but didn’t think of putting a bottle in the basement “just in case” … Good idea!

Yes, my plan was to treat the diesel for both directions.
I believe my air dryer is working properly but I'd kinda hate to get stranded.
Do you do winter travel? If so, do you use alcohol?
