Hey Turbs, what was the temp when your fuel gelled up? It has gotten down to 5 here and no issues with my Jeep. Does the Duramax have a fuel heater in the bowl? The original filter for my Jeep had a "puck" that had a heater where the filter screws on, and my aftermarket replacement has an element in the fuel bowl.

choochoo,
It was about -15 I had truck plugged in with a timer that came on at 2 am.
the filter has NO heater on it ......
My filter dic monitor was at 30% wednesday.
and went to 0% yesterday morning then the reduced power/check engine light came on.

As I said I doubled my antigel additive but I have my suspisions that the filter needed changed anyway.
I am going to start changing it "depending on milage" or "weather" at about 30%

-15 is sure cold. You can keep it out there!! Summer will be here before you know it.

I wouldn't want the job of changing your filter. Looks like GM had a brilliant idea when they designed that. Although, your mod does make it a lot easier to get to.

Yeah considering you have to pull the inner liner out otherwise to replace filter.

Why so many Dmax guys go with the FASS or AIR DOG fuel setups and install under front doors inside truck frame...way easier to access than the stock location (besides the better filtration aspects & fuel delivery when your running higher HP #'s)...GM has the TD engine crammed under these hoods!

Ill have to start saving damaged wheel liners for you guys to make access hole covers.

- I usually change my filter at about 5k- which is about once every 9-10 months.
