Yip it can, it's stabile with #2 mixed in. Kinda like reg water cools better than anti freeze..
Make sense?
If you took a couple table spoons and mixed it with say 1-2 cups #2 and left it in the damn cold along side some #2 without it you would see the differance.

I wouldn't know since I live in FL but I was at the dealership and looked at some antigel/fuel stabalizer (motocraft) and it said to keep at temperatures above freezing before use.

I was told by a Stanadyne sales person that by itself it will gel, but when it is added to the fuel it does not. Some kind of reaction i guess. Hope this helps.

Depends on the base of the product, but yes it can. I use FPPF Total Power and have yet to see it coagulate or gel up.

Additives are always best used warm and mixed well, but I have carried my mix in the bed of my truck in all temps and the worst is the bottle gets stiff and makes it hard to push into the squeeze up chamber.
