this is going to be a long one so bare with me here...ive already done a little searching for this problem but wanted to know if you guys could give me a definite answer. it was -30 last night not including the windchill, so i plugged my truck in. tank was about half full with some fuel stabilizer in it. i got up and started it at about 10am. started perfectly, ran for about 35 seconds, than died. tried to start it for a few minutes after that and it kept cranking but would not turn over. threw some diesel 911 in the tank and some in the fuel filter. then i realized i should put some in the air dog filter, but of course, had none left. tried to start it up again and still, nothing. so i unscrewed the airdog filter and there was liquid fuel in there. then i prime the fuel filter in the engine bay a couple times and it does not fill up. im assuming this means theres a frozen fuel line between the air dog and the injection pump. and my only option would be to wait it out or get a ride with someone and put some more diesel 911 in the airdog filter...does this sound right? thanks guys

Well It's kind of late now but ya that sounds right alot of fuel conditions only protect up to -40 or -50 degree(or atleast the ones I use) so with it being -30 then a wind chill that could easily be pushing -40 to -50 degree so that sounds right have you gotten it running by now
