Gel Melt Use Notes
To De-Ice Frozen Fuel Filters:
If fuel is 'liquid' in the fuel tanks, but engine won't start, remove fuel filters and fill with 50% Gel Melt and 50% fresh diesel fuel. Reinstall fuel filters. Start Engine. Add Opti-Lube Winter or XPD All-In-One as directed to prevent gelling.
To Reliquefy Gelled Fuel:
Add approximately 1oz of Gel Melt to every 3 Gallons of fuel in the tanks. Remove fuel filters and fill with 50% Gel Melt and 50% fresh diesel fuel. Reinstall fuel filters. Start Engine. Let engine idle to warm up fuel system. Add Opti-Lube Winter or XPD All-In-One as directed to prevent gelling.
To Remove Water & Prevent Fuel Filter Icing:
Refer to treatment rates to determine the amount of Gel Melt needed to add to fuel. For Biodiesel blends containing a maximum of 20% biodiesel (B20), add two times the amount of additive listed.
