I've used power service in -20 with no issues. Just a little real world experience hope it helps..

The problem with testing anti gel properties in your truck is the issues that it causes in your truck. You can just mix it up and set it outside as well. But that only gives one dynamic. You can also use the freezer, but that probably won't go near enough to the gel point of winter #2.

Also, it is important to remember that anti gel treatments themselves can get quite thick. It is mixing them with the diesel that completes the chemistry. Anti gel basically does one thing, it separates the wax crystals from each other when they start to form in the fuel.

I personally do not like power service I have had it in several trucks that still gelled when it got real cold mainly -10 and below. Had 2 dmaxes and a 6.0 do it with power service.

I've used Power Service (White Bottle) in temps as low as -30*F (before wind chill) and never (knocks on wood) had any gelling issues. Sure....truck didn't want to start and bitched for a couple minutes, but never gelled up. I do over-dose it a little bit tho, and use TW3 2-stroke oil as well.

It seems to be more of a prevalent issue with trucks that have fuel filters on the frame rail

I only have 1 on the frame, but still....no issues.

I've noticed a lot of the people that have issues live in more southern states, and although I have no proof, my theory is they live in an area with either poorly mixed winter fuel, or still have summer fuel in the tank.

Over on CompD there were quite a few guys who have had issues with Power Service and gelling. Majority lived in cold northern states

And if that's the case, maybe I'm just lucky.

Of course, if you knew me better, you'd KNOW that wasn't the case,
