You should have looked where he was from.

Those little bottles to a full tank won't hurt and it will keep water from bunching together and freezing especially if you don't use your car often and are often low on gas. But if you're like me and go through 2-3 tanks a week doubt you'll need it unless it drops below -25C (-13F). In your case since you reach these low temperatures a few times in the winter it is a good mean of prevention to add some before a cold spell. You don't want your fuel line to freeze when it's -40C (-40F) and have to walk somewhere for help. I also put some of the stuff (a spoonfull maybe)in my windshield washer containers at this time of the year when all of the summer windshield washer fluid is not all used up yet. Stops it from freezing until I add the winter stuff.
