I did some research on the Cold Flow fuel additive from MB. It's comprised mostly of kerosene (and at $25 a bottle to treat a single tank not really economical to use). Lucas Anti-Gel was the closest off the shelf additive I could find (both products are safe for diesels equipped with particulate filters e.g. BlueTEC ect.). Kerosene will provide anti-gel protection for extreme cold, but good fuel system maintenance is still important.
