Opti-Lube is known to provide the best diesel fuel additives on the market. After taking our customers suggestions into account, one thing became apparent, we NEEDED an emergency type product to cut through Gel and Ice in cold weather emergencies.
Fuel gelling in the winter is every diesel owners nightmare and we can all make mistakes and forget to put in our Opti-Lube XPD or Winter when we should. Now you can rest easy knowing that Opti-Lube has your back with Gel Melt! Put one on your shelf for "just in case!"

CAUTION - THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR CONTINUOUS USE
Opti-Lube Gel Melt is a winter emergency use product. Use this product if your vehicle will not start or gain power. Gel Melt was not designed to prevent fuel gelling, for this use Opti-Lube Winter or XPD Blends as preventative measures to keep fuel from gelling. Winter and XPD are both compatible in diesel fuel and may be used at the same time.
