Winter Diesel Blending Notification

Oct 13, 2021

With cold weather fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about your winter diesel fuel needs. At River Valley Cooperative, we believe incorporating cold flow improvers and #1 diesel into your fuel when ambient air temperatures approach 40° F is appropriate to ensure cold weather protection.    
Based on current weather projections, we will start Cold Flow Improver (CFI) blending into the diesel fuel delivered to your fuel tank on November 1, 2021. CFI is formulated to extend the operability of the fuel by an average of 15° F. 
 
If you plan on operating in temperatures below 15° F, #1 diesel should be blended into your tank. If your tank was blended with #1 last year, we will automatically blend down your tank to the same ratio as last year. If you are a new customer or would like to start having your tank blended, please call our Energy Office or your energy account manager. 
 
If you do not want CFI blended into your diesel fuel or if you need to request/change winter blending options, please contact the Energy Office or your River Valley energy account manager by October 22, 2021.
 
As always, we appreciate your business and look forward to serving your energy needs.
