To further clarify the role of Power Service Diesel-911:

"Diesel 911 is a winter emergency use product. This Winter Rescue Formula reliquefies gelled fuel and de-ices frozen fuel-filters to restore the flow of diesel fuel to an engine. Diesel 911 does not prevent fuel gelling – use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost (in the white bottle) as a preventive measure to keep fuel from gelling. Diesel 911 and Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost are compatible in diesel fuel and may be used at the same time."


Read the instructions here: http://powerservice.com/wp-content/u...B-8000_HR1.pdf

To Reliquefy Gelled Diesel Fuel
During cold weather operation, diesel fuel that has not been treated with Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement® +Cetane Boost® can change from a liquid to a solid. This transformation is called gelling.
To reliquefy gelled diesel fuel:
1. Add 80 ounces of Diesel 911 to each 100 gallons of fuel in equipment tanks.
2. Remove fuel-filters.
3. Fill fuel-filters with 50% Diesel 911 and 50% diesel fuel.
4. Reinstall fuel-filters.
5. Start engine — let idle to warm up fuel system before resuming normal operation.
6. Add Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost as directed to prevent further gelling. (White Bottle).

If you have a 120v block heater that can be plugged in then you can possibly just add the Power Service White bottle to the fuel and it will start right up without the mess of opening the fuel bowl.
