Back to the cold weather part of this thread, Our 2018 x1100c gelled up last week at 6 below. With winterized fuel ( cut with kerosene 60/40, and treated with PS ). This was after it had been running for about 3 hours.
It seems to me the tiny little fuel filter is in a very vulnerable place. Right in front of the right rear wheel, and outside of the frame. Very exposed. I had wrapped it with some foam, but apparently it needs some heat from somewhere.
Any of you people in colder climates have fuel problems ? And how do you deal with them ?
This one has tracks and is used to groom snowmobile trails, so it needs to be dependable in cold conditions.

We used Power Service when I lived in Alaska.

When I was running logging trucks in Montana, we'd see 30 to 40 below frequently and I never had a problem with 50/50 winter blend. I now live in Alaska and only use #1 in my Kubota and my rig starts with ease at 40 below. I agree with the crappy fuel filter and intend to put on a better one this summer. An older 1100 we had at the mine had fuel issues also, but it was water freezing in the tank outlet. That particular machine had a bottom draw tank(bad idea). Not sure what my machine has, never looked at it that close.
