D-Max Fuel system?

Ok... Yes I know this is a powerstroke forum, and yes I know I don't drive a D-max, but for some of my friends like the girly ride and interior.

At any rate on of my friends thinks he's been having some gelling issues with his in the mornings even though he's treated his fuel. Do these have a fuel heater in them? Is the filter a 81tch to change?

Of course I can't really compare his morning starts to mine, the climate control system said the external temp was 50F when I started mine this morning though it was down to 12F when I shut her down in the parking lot

Thx
Mark

Durmax's have a problem with fuel gelling. It's bad enough that everyone I know with one carry an extra fuel filter with them. I think you have to go through the passenger side fenderwell to access it but I'm not sure.

Well I should have put this in my original post, but he's also not the most proactive on his maintenance either. I know he's put at least one fuel filter on it, but not sure about more then that. And I'm sure its been more then 15k since he has

BTW 04 GMC CC 4x4 if that matters any.

Well when its cold he's got a remote start on it, so its probably been running for 20min before he even opens the front door.

Depending where he buys fuel at he will probably want to run additive too. There is a station around here that is always cheaper because they run a lot of bio in their fuel. The 1st really cold day we had out here we were getting calls like crazy because trucks wouldn't run so we had to change filters and add bio additive.

I'm not sure where he bought this batch of fuel at, though I know we both frequent the same stations. He's running the white bottled power service stuff, and I'm running the Ford Performance Improver and Anti-Gel.
