Well im just trying to get it de-gelled now, I put a quart of power service 911 in the tank, replaced the fuel filter and put some 911 in there too along with some fuel, it's been plugged in for a few days, and now it just turns over and spits and sputters but that's it. I've got a charger on it now cause the batteries were gettin low. The big sh*tter is that i dont have a warm place to park it, if i could then i would be out drivin. What do you mean what coolant? im running the normal green stuff if thats what your askin. let me know what you think, thanks for the help.

k. cause it says you from SD i i'm sure it gets way way cold up there and i was thinking if its already cold enough for you fuel to freeze then other stuff will be just as cold. at least its on the block heater to help it heat up.
