Possible diesel fuel additive for winterization

Do any of you diesel owners use any kind of stabilizer in the fuel tank for winter storage from 3-5 months, besides being sure the tank is full?
I used to use a bottle of Stabil but when I went to get one the other day the label just said for gasoline engines and also add a shot of Biocide if I had it. Our Oklahoma winter can range from the low teen's to the 40's.
Maybe i'm just over thinking all this.

Sta-Bil makes a diesel storage additive. Even better, IMHO, is
one made by PRI.

It is my understanding diesel producers add "some" additives to diesel fuel for winter times. perhaps more so in the cold regions. I have run various diesel pushers I have had in as low as 20s without issue. however, one can always take additional steps, I have never had the reason to do so.
