Question Rough running

When the temp dropped below freezing my 2005 f-350 6.0 would start just like normal, but after about 10-15 seconds it would act like it was missing. This would last for a few minutes then it would run normal. About a week ago it was a lot colder than it had been and it acted the same way then after about 12 miles it started to run like it had a bad miss then it acted like it had run out of fuel and just died. I could start it after a couple minutes and it would run rough and die after about a mile or two. I changed both fuel filters and after starting it and allowing it to run at idle for quite awhile I shut it off. The next day it started right up like there was never anything wrong with it. after letting it idle for about 10 minutes I took it for a drive around the neighborhood and for about 10 minutes it seemed ok until I decided to take it out on the highway and give it some pedal. It started to run rough and eventually died. It did this two more times in about 5 miles before I got it home. Any ideas?

fixed it

I finally took it to the Ford garage and they replaced two injectors. Now it runs like it should. That makes 3 of them in 2 years. How do you keep it from going through injectors?

A friend told me to use Diesel Fuel supplement w/Slick Diesel in the winter to help prevent gelling when it will be below freezing. I never thought to use it all year long, I will do that from now on.
Thanks....
