Winter camping trip with my 6.0
This past weekend my son (13 yr old) and I ventured up north to Tobermory (between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay) for a 3 night winter camping trip. Talk about cold. I prepared the truck in my usual fashion, oil change (5w-40 sync) fuel filter change. First night the weather changed and a snow and wind storm hit us, no problem. We where well prepared for the cold. The second night was a bit better not as much wind and no snow fall. But Sunday night the wind was so strong that the tent was almost ready to blow over. Lucky I staked it down. This morning, on our way back home I noticed that my fuel pressure gauge was showing me 58psi, normally I was seeing 68psi after the fuel spring upgrade. About an hour into the drive I pulled in to fill up (about 1/2 tank). I first poured in some "power stroke diesel kleen", (almost a quart) before the diesel went in. After about 1/2 driving the fuel pressure gauge went back up to 68psi.
Any ideas to why? Is it possible that I was on my way to having my fuel starting to gell? What did I just dodge?
If your commin, it's over. If your stroken, it's just started.
