Deisel Kleen and B20

I'm sure I've seen this discussed here before, and I've also looked on biodiesel.org, but does anyone else run a little bit of winter DK with their BioD to help with low temp gelling/cloud point/etc.?

From what I've read on biodiesel.org. it seems as though they suggest treat bio just as you would dino D with respect to additives.....does anyone have evidence to the contrary? Thanks

I've read to treat Bio differently than Dino. As in, definately run cold weather additive or cut your bio blends a little thinner i.e. go from B100 to B50 etc, in cold weather. I only run B20 about every other tank and use the white/winter bottle of Power Service with no problems so far. Haven't even changed my filters.

The Howes diesel treat says it's good for up to B20 on the bottle.

I emailed my B10 supplier and he replied they treat their bio w/ antigel good to 0 deg.F and I also do 3 0z/gal PS just to be on the safe side.
EDIT I just went and checked, I do @ 1 oz/gal, I fill up around 1/2 tank usually and add 1/3 of the small bottle( 32 oz bottle) so that would be around 1 oz/gal. but at 1/2 tank it prob. ends up being more than 1 oz/gal actually in the tank I would guess. And no gelling problems yet w/B10
