I changed fuel filters; above picture was what was drained out.
-5 deg C and snow outside; straight vegetable oil had dropped below its cloud point in the tank. Fortunately, tank was very low, so I drained tank, then added 10 litres of diesel, and 20 litres of the mix from my signature. 150 mile run; no further problems.

Added 1 litre of petrol to the 4 25L tubs I have left, declouded a treat.

The plug had also come off the Toyota fuel filter heater; darn it! Thing is taped up now.

Still worth the 100's it has saved me over the past 6 months, 10K miles.
