We’ve had some brutally cold temps for 2 weeks now in MA. Went to snowblow today with the 1025r, no go. Plugged in the block heater, let it heat for 45 minutes, then started it and let let run for another 10. Ran fine while warming up, but as soon as I engaged the blower, it chugged and bogged down real bad, and then quit. Looked in the tank and it was fine, secondary fuel filter on the side of the engine looked fine, looked at the inline filter under the left floorboard and it looks like it’s full of lard. Was able to get it started again 10 minutes later to get it back in the shed.
I run the PS winter formula, but when I filled my diesel tanks, they may have still been on the summer fuel.
Will this ungel if I heat the lines and filter enough? I don’t want to run Diesel 911. I have a spare inline filter, but I just changed it for n the fall so I’d rather not do it again unless I have to.
What’s the best way to get the lines and filter ungelled? I was thinking about covering the tractor with a tarp and running a heater under it. What temperature will diesel ungel?
