Temperatures have been near zero Fahrenheit for the last week or so. I drove my gasser pickup this morning because I still have some biodiesel in my VW tank that gelled last month and is still giving me an occasional issue.

Before the truck was warm, in the cold the difference in coasting speeds was shocking. I was slowing to a stop well in advance of lights, where before I was having to brake slightly. I guess the axle grease takes a while to lose it's friction.
