I see a lot of anecdotes on here about how blends fair in cold weather in various types of injector pumps. Anybody have a guess as to how a 7.3L Powerstroke (no IP-injection pressure is handled by the injectors themselves-read more here: ) would do with a blend in hot weather? I'm in Central New Jersey and the temperature won't be dropping below 65 degrees F at least until mid September.

It's also very important to remove water, fats, etc. BEFORE you add the thinners since many of the thinners will inhibit settling.
