While blocking off part of the radiator will help your motor warm up faster, gelling is a fuel issue and wont help much.
Gelling useually shows up in the first part of the fuel system mainly the HFCM and first fuel filter. These are located under the truck outside the engine compartment.
In a way I hate to respond to cold issues because I have little personal experience I can only go by antedotal evidence, what I hear or read. I mean I only live 12 miles from falling into the gulf of Mexico freezeing is not something we do often.
I imagine you folks up north find it funny when you see on the news that the whole state shuts down when it reaches freezeing, schools are closed, public buildings and the bridges and overpasses shut down the highway systems. Hell we cant even drive the wrecker buisness quadruples during a freese spell everybody is out in the weeds. LOL
Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink
