Jet -A! is mainly kerosene which has additives to lower its freezing point.

It is generally of a *higher* quality than road diesel fuel.

You could safely add it to you r diesel mix in winter to achieve a lower waxing (freezing) point in extreme weather.

That's what I got from 10 years working offshore in petrochemicals, flying to work in all kinds of conditions in helicopters of varying size and power....
