-24 degrees out at the airfield, two of the three diesels in the lot did not start, mine started, but gell'ed on the road. Limped to the service station, and got some Power Service 911.

Leason learned sleekcrafter, you are suppose to run that stuff year round if you want things to run well. After a nice gell job you better replace your filter or you will have other problems. ;)

we all run Power Service anti-gel additive, but Sugar grove was -30 I was told, was -29 again this morning. The 911 really does the trick, un gel'ed one of the trucks in a few minutes, opened the the filter housing, poured some in, dumped the rest in the tank. Cycled the key, three times then cranked, and started.

where are you guys buying your fuel? are you buying premium dsl? this just sounds odd to me. the co. I work for is a fuel co. it was -17 last night and we didn't get any calls this morning. I did plug the 6.5 burbin in last night but it sets outside all night. starts up and no gel. not talkin any shit, just wondering where the fuel is coming from.

sorry, drunk posting...don't wan't to change jets to hit the lake:)sphss

sleek, -30 is very cold for #2 dsl tho, so I can understand that. if it ever gets this cold again you could always mix in some #1. helps a ton but less power. i'm sure you know tho.

If there still putting soybeans in it this time of year I can understand.:)sphss that stuff sucks. we have to keep ours warm all winter in the shop. If that stuff gets under 40* it turns solid. cut your filter apart, it will look like sugar. all done plowin, off to the lake
