Yep, and it can be treated but it's best to keep the water out and not let it grow in the first place. That's why I told the op it's best to keep a full tank in the winter to keep the condensation out, and to use a demulsifying additive

Wish I'd known about that trick. I let my truck sir a week in the airport parking lot. Got in to start it and the oil temp was 20 degrees per my sct. It fired right up but man what a lope.


Don't you need to be careful with battery tenders. Think my dad was saying he would burn all the water or if his batteries. They need to be on a timer right

I'm not sure that this would help with the cold lope , but it does get the parts lubed up before starting .
I believe it's good for the lifters and cam more than anything .

A quality Battery Tender won't burn the water out of the batteries. I've always used the Battery Tender brand but I've heard of others using other brands with good results. The Batt Tender that I have trickle charges very low and then just maintains. But the one I have would be useless for trying to "charge" the batts from dead or nearly dead, I have an actual charger for that.

My truck also has one heck of a lope on super cold startup until it warms up enough to get to high idle! Then it clears up!
