I hate to admit but I had a 97 6.5 chevy. Had to put a salamander under the front bumper for about a half hour one morning because I thought 10.00 was way to much for some Power Service. Little did I know.:fist:

Normal Power Service (white bottle) will not ungel fuel.

Get Power Service Diesel 911 (red bottle) or Diesel Melt Down from FPPF or equivilant product. Anti-gel is not a de-gel. You need to de-gel or ungel your fuel.

First off, it is likely gelled in the fuel filter. Plug in your block heater over night, and put the truck in the garage if possible. Enough heat will reach the fuel filter to ungel the fuel in the filter.

Second, dump the Diesel 911 or Melt Down in the tank. If possible, park the truck in a heated garage overnight. You just have to get things above 35 or 40 degrees really.

In the AM, once you get the truck running, dump in a good anti gel, like Poweer Service Diesel Fuel Supplement (white bottle) or AMSOIL Cold Flow or equivilant product. Go fill the truck up if it is low on fuel, you'll want to dilute that 911 as much as you can now. From now on, treat every tank with anti gel if you are in cold temps.

If you can't find an anti gel, I can ship you a case of Cold Flow. Most truck stops and heavy truck repair shops should carry antigel and degel 911 products.

For future reference...

I've been using 2 cycle oil for a anti-gel and lubrication additive. I Don't use PowerService or any of the other additives. So far I've been down to -20.2*F without a problem with cold starts or gelling problems.



I only takes 1 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of fuel. Works wonderful.

As for more information on this go to...

No problems...:thumbsup

Just check out these two links I've got lots of good information on ULSD and additive on the market.

2 Cycle Oil Research <- My Write up on 2 Cycle Oil

http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/al...troke-oil.html <- 37 pages thread here on CF.com about 2 cycle oil usage!

Nothing to fear just use it! :thumbsup

Like I said, the white bottle works well as an anti-gel, but it will not ungel an already gelled fuel. The red bottle, Diesel 911, is used to ungel a gelled fuel.

One prevents the problem in the first place (white bottle) and the other fixes the problem once it has been allowed to occur (red bottle).


And yes, try the 2 stroke oil. Mopar1973Man speaks the truth!

Well I put some melt down in the tank and a disk heater is working on the filter. They are just too hard to take off especially when it is below zero.
