that looks like either PHO or extreemly emulsified water and VO.
the ring looks like cold pho or wax crystals. probably wax crystals from the cool oil. imagine that crap getting into your motor on startup.
D2 will thin VO but generally not mix well. what likely happend is the heavy vo/pho sunk to the bottom of your fuel tank, and thats what the fuel pickup sucked up first. it was warm enough to run by the time it made it to your bowl, then it cooled off. eventually you had enough in there that it clogged the filter.
thanks a ton for posting this. this is a great thread for those thinking of mixing, or those that have a kit that feeds vo to the fuel bowl. (like the one the PO put on mine)
heat that crap up and see if it melts, then do a hot pan test. if no crackeling, or minimal crackeling then its probably just pho.
my advise, aside from your conclusions on mixing and having to clean the bowl, fill the clean bowl with seafoam and the new filter, run the truck around the block a couple of times. let it sit overnight to soak the injectors. run it a few miles the next day to flush the sea foam, then change the oil. Clay has a pretty pic of his buddys crankcase, he mixed vo with D2.
