Hi

Is there service stations around the Scone area that sell Winter Diesel as I'm planning a camping trip in the Barrington Tops area this winter.

Thanks

I occasionally fill up at two of the four Scone servos, and despite getting down to -3 occasionally each winter there and here in Tamworth and I've never had a problem starting my vehicle in winter.
But I can't tell you if they serve "winter diesel", on rare occasions gets down to -6 here and Scone.
Suggest you ring the Shell servo or the old BP, more likely to get a sensible answer from the owner of those businesses them rather than Woolworths or the newer big BP next to Maccas.

I left 15yrs ago but I lived in Newcastle for 32yrs and never heard of anyone talking about winter diesel in that area I spent my fair share of time in Barrington Tops and Gloucester Tops without any problems. I only thought it was available down south around the snow fields I could be wrong though. Regular diesel is usually ok to around -8 deg so you will be fine or you can buy some additive if your still concerned.

If winter distillate is available, I use it for moderately cold conditions.
When it is not readily available and it might be a tad cold for a few nights, I put in an additive called "Icebreaker" by Oracle (I think), more for peace of mind :-)
For really cold conditions, a 50/50 mix of distillate and heating oil is what one of the snow resorts use in their diesel powered machinery during the winter season.
