I run fuel additives in the winter with every tank. Not saying the fuel is causing the knock. But like Dave asked did the knock go away when the truck warmed up.

Not to be a pain dude but I can't understand your question. I think it's the lack of puncuation at the least.

does your gfi reset? it may be tripped at your breaker panel. those things are very sensitive. i changed my gfi out to a regular plug cause it does the same thing on my camper when i plug it in.
