Hot Shot’s Secret Winter Defense

Hot Shot’s Secret Everyday Diesel Treatment (EDT) is the No. 1 selling diesel fuel conditioner in retail. Now, Hot Shot’s Secret is introducing a new complementary formulation developed specifically for use during cold weather. EDT+ Winter Defense provides all the benefits of EDT fuel additive, including improved power, performance and mpg. Additionally, it prevents gelling and icing when temperatures start to drop and has industry-leading lubricity protection with the addition of LX4 Lubricity Extreme.

Cold temperatures can cause diesel fuel to gel or ice, causing hard starts, poor combustion and, at times, total fuel system failure. With winter around the corner and extreme cold predicted, EDT+ Winter Defense is recommended for use to ensure operability for any diesel engine in fall, winter and early spring months.

With a pour point of -65°F, EDT+ Winter Defense is specially formulated to ensure diesel fuel tanks and lines stay fully operational. While it can be used year-round, this additive was developed to provide all the protective benefits of EDT while preventing fuel line freeze-ups in temps as low as -40°F.
