wvo gelled up causing plug up

Well after almost 5 years of running the golden fuel, I ran into a problem with losing power with wvo. Turns out that the pickup tube in my second heated tank had gelled up. It gelled up at the 90 degree fitting that goes to the fuel line.

cleaned up and runs great again.

Anyone else have this issue?

I think when I switch to D2 there is a little vo residue that stays in the fitting and over time it became a plug. The rest of the system always has vo in it so there isnt any chance to dryout and gel.

I run the diesel kleen all the time.

I run B100 in my truck and have been for almost a year now (and have been running it in my jetta for 5 years now) and have never had this problem. I use howes additive with each fill up. It might have just been a fluke
