Question about gelling
Okay, I'm in the middle of our company holiday shutdown and haven't had to drive the truck to work or anything for about 2 weeks. I've had the truck plugged in and topped off the fuel before parking it in the garage. Since I basically haven't left the house, I haven't bothered checking weather reports or anything. The place where I fuel up says they treat their fuel for temps down to -10F. Well, I woke up this morning and the outside temps were -15F. Assuming my fuel has started to gel, how warm will I have to get the truck between now and Monday morning to make sure I get to work okay (to melt the gel I assume is there)?
It's up to -4F right now, with a high of -1F. I do have about 16oz of PowerService left, which I had mixed with the previous tank of fuel so hopefully my fuel lines and fuel filter are still clear. Any probelms should just be in the fuel tank.
Thanks, hopefully this won't turn into a 911 thread at 8AM Monday morning...
