is my fuel still good?

Ok this may be a stupid question. My EGR went out on my 06 6.0 in June. Lucky I have another vehicle to drive because work has been terribly slow this year so i haven't been able to fix it yet, should get to work on it next month. So my question is, is the fuel thats been in it for the last six months still good? It probably has a half to three quarters of a tank and I have always added diesel kleen to every tank. I know I will be putting in new filters before I crank it over just wondering about the fuel. Thanks

It'll be fine. Just ad some stabil, and run it. Drain the water seperator a few times, and top her off with fresh fuel.

Diesel supports bacteria growth but that takes a lot longer than six months. When any vehicle is parked for extended periods of time it's best to do it with a full tank to cut down on moisture being drawn in.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
