6.4 Began to Gel Up!
I have 1,700 miles on her, and have read the owners manual which preached that you should never have to plug this truck in unless the temperature reaches -10 degrees f. Yeah, right! I didn't drive mine for two days living here in North Jersey, and the temps were in the single digits those nights. I then went to start it Thursday morning and it was shaking and sputtering. This lasted about 2-3min and then it cleared up and began to run smooth. I have been adding ford's anti get + performance addative every fill up. I have not drained the fuel/water seperator yet so maybe this is what caused my fuel to begin to gel up? I am going to drain this today as it is recommended to be done every month. Since this incident I have began plugging her in at night, which I guess will be a daily thing till the end of the winter now. Overall I must say that even when the temps were in the teens, I had no problems when starting her up in the morning, but I guess the single digit temps and sitting for two days was just a little too much? I have been running Sunoco Diesel Fuel, and Hess Diesel Fuel, anyone have any of there trucks gelling up???????:shrug:
