Alright guys here's the skinny.....
My truck has been sitting for about 4 months now already. During these four months the temp has been as low as -30 F* for a week at a time, and is now currently running in the +60's F*. The truck only has about 1/4 tank in it. Now...As if that wan't bad enough, I'm now here in Afghanistan....So she'll be sitting like this for the next YEAR! Due to unforseen drama/circumstances I was unable to do my research and set my rig up properly before this deployment.
The whole reason for sidlining her in the first place is that the steering gear box has offically s**t the bed. At the time, funds were not available to get her up and running.
I attempted (poorly I might add) to get her running, and over to a friends hanger/shop but again....time was short. In my failed attempt I added 5 gallons of fresh diesel and some, not all of, a bottle of Power Service Diesel 911. I added this due to the fact that at that time, the temps had just started warming from -30 up into the +20's, and like I said, it sat through all of it, so I figured I'd have condensation/gelling issues upon startup trying to get it to my friends shop. Needless to say.... I didn't even get a chance to turn her over. So now I have this HORRIBLE c0cktail of 4 month old diesel...5 gallons of fresh diesel...and I'd say about a 1/4 bottle of Diesel 911 is just SITTING in my tank...What the hell am I going to do guys?!?!?!?
I have friends on the ground there back home that would have no problem helping me out....I just need guidance/instruction as to what the heck to do.
Thanks guys...Sorry for writing a book, but I'm just hella' paranoid/freaking out about this. I love my 7.3, and fell like hell having to leave her in the condition she is.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated
