How to De-ice Frozen Fuel Filters

Water is dissolved in and carried by all diesel fuels. At temperatures below +32°F, water that has collected in fuel-filters freezes. This causes decreased fuel flow to the engine and results in reduced engine power or engine shutdown.

To de-ice frozen fuel-filters, check to insure that diesel fuel in the equipment fuel tanks is not gelled. If fuel is liquid:

  • 1. Remove fuel-filters.
  • 2. Empty remaining liquid from fuel-filters.
  • 3. Fill fuel-filters with 50% Diesel 9•1•1® and 50% diesel fuel.
  • 4. Re-install fuel-filters.
  • 5. Start engine.
  • 6. If outside temperature is below +20°F, add Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement® +Cetane Boost® as directed to prevent further gelling.

    My uncle is a truck driver, and he often has to drive through Canada. He has had multiple occasions where the fuel has frozen because of the low temperatures up there. I’ll make sure to show him these tips, and to show him the treatment products to help him avoid that.
