What are the lowest temperatures at which Jugopetrol diesel fuel can be used?

It is a natural characteristic of diesel fuel to experience the precipitation of paraffin wax at low temperatures, which makes engine operation more difficult or impossible. The lowest temperature at which fuel can be used smoothly is called the cold filter plugging point (CFPP), which is the temperature at which fuel does not pass through a standardised filter of a specific diameter, due to paraffin formation. The CFPP is standardised for the whole territory of Montenegro, meaning that fuel at all Jugopetrol AD petrol stations is of the same quality. The prescribed CFPP for the winter season is -15 0C, and Jugopetrol supplies diesel fuel with a CFPP between -18 and -20 0C, which makes it completely suitable for use in all areas of Montenegro.
