So since you posted all the facts
I am curious??
why did the fuel Gel if you were using their fuel additive with AntiGel ?

was it so cold it was outside their antigel limit or was the ratio off ?

you blame the station ? not winter blend ? or ??

i couldn't find much on the product doing a quick search of the LE site

I haven't had any gelling issues since switching to LE; however, it rarely gets as cold in Chicago as what the OP is dealing with. Before LE, I had tried Power Service and Howes, and I gelled with both of them. (At different times, I wasn't using both additives at once.) Honestly, I think the fuel quality at the station makes a bigger difference than which additive you use. I think LE is a great product, and Jim's service is second to none. That being said, I don't know if it can overcome a bad batch of fuel or fuel with too much biodiesel. Between the LE additive and avoiding certain gas stations, I was fine all of last year. This winter is supposed to be worse, so we'll see what happens.

Thanks
I have only used Power Service at 20* so nothing crazy

I don't see a lot on the Gel characteristics but power service has a much higher ratio recommendation for bio and below 0

i imagine Full Torque must also



Cold Weather Performance (2411)

Provides easier cold startups

Prevents fuel gelling by controlling wax formation

Lowers pour point and cold filter plugging point

Decreases cold flow temp

Inhibits ice formation
Available Versions

Full Torque™ W Diesel Fuel Improver (2411)
is recommended for use when temperatures
are at or below 35F (1.7C).

I blame the fuel I got more so than the additive. I know it's a great additive, this was more about showing how great Jim's service is than knocking the product. I have 10 more COLD days ahead at least so we will see how it performs now. The ratio was correct, 8oz per 25 gallons.

I'm willing to bet that you got some watery fuel.. no additive can help that.. I realy doubt it gelled up.. I bet it froze!! we have some really chity fuel here in ny. some of the worst I have been around.. the ft winter cleans it right up..

Only time I've ever had any gel was in WY with Howes at 2-3 times normal ratio. Several oil burners were running just fine. Asked a guy I knew and he asked where I got fuel. Told him (busiest station in town) he said that's your problem, get it across the street at Phillips 66. Granted it was 40 below, and never got that cold again while I was there...thank goodness. Took three days for the truck to run again.
