2004 with no acceleration, cuts out, but idles and starts fine

i have a 2004 Dodge Automatic. and it has been getting really cold here around 0 deg at night and 10 degrees during the day. i was close to running out of fuel the other day and fulled up, plugged my truck in started it up as usual to let it idle for about 30 minutes before getting in. I would also like to mention these diesel don't like to warm inside the cab for anyone. Anyway, while i was driving i had no acceleration. when i would go up a hill i couldn't go faster than 15 mph. if i floored it, it would make it worse. couldn't bring the RPM above 2000 rpm. when i parked it i could only rev to 2500 rpm with no load. i was thinking i got some bad fuel or it gelled up. I am in missouri and i am not sure if the gas station is putting winter additives in. Where can you check for this on the pump. changed fuel filter and still nothing. could this be a bad lift pump or injectors. Could the catalytic converter be plugged up? it idles fine. upon start up there is a little rattling but goes away after 5 minutes. i need some suggestion or a good answer to why i cannot accelerate. the more gas i give it the worse it gets but she will idle fine.

Wow, mine pretty much did the same thing this morning. Put some Diesel 911 in and let it idel for about one hour and all is good. Your fuel is gelling. I work in Missouri, it is cold.

Put some Diesel 911 in it and see if it helps.

Ok so i put the truck in the garage and started up the salamander (heater) and changed the fuel filter, which was black. and earler in the day i put some anti gel cetone treatment. and blamo, something simple actually worked. i think i got some bad fuel or i guess they don't put a winter treatment in their diesel in Missouri. thanks for the help.

pretty much same story with me, I dumped a bottle of 911 in it and havn't had a hickup since seems kinda fishy to me though since I run anti gel additive every time I fuel up either way gonna order an air dog so I dont have to worry about it

what does an airdog do to prevent this? my fuel filter when i took it out was black. i still haven't had any issues but it warmed up significantly here. i think i might take the V-rod out. went from -5 to 50 in a week and snow is melted.
