Question about 2007 Toyota Land Cruiser
The "pink" fluid referred to previous is for the radiator, DONOT put it in the fuel tank (which is what your question was about i think). Generally in cold climates, the service stations sell "winterised diesel" which has an additive to stop separating and doing damaging things to your motor,in australia we have summer and winter diesel. The nature of the design of your fuel system means that some of the fuel is constantly being returned to your fuel tank,(after going to the injectors bypass) thus this fuel is "warm" and by being returned to the tank helps warm the remaining fuel.
1)Use winterised diesel

Besides your vehicle's oil and car battery, the fuel line can also be an issue during winter. In theory, there should be no water in your fuel line from the start. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When your fuel lines freeze no gasoline can get to the motor, meaning combustion is halted, which leads to your car not turning over.
Condensation from temperature fluctuations could leave water in your gas line or fuel tank, which causes further complications.
Using fuel with a low alcohol content or premium fuel is one solution. However, in many cases, it may be necessary to repair or replace your fuel lines entirely. You can buy a product that dries up the water in the gas tank when the car is warm from auto parts store. Use a lighter weight oil because your oil gets thicker when below freezing. Try a 5w weight oil.
