Re: [MV] Diesel Fuel Freezing in Blazer

         It won't really help at all, just buy your fuel at a high volume
station that sells a lot of fuel. I recommend the Sunoco, Shell stations at
exit four. If you buy fuel at some of the Mobile stations in the area that
sell Diesel fuel you might wind up with Summer fuel because they don't have
the volume as compared to truck fuel stops. The Shell at exit four has the
lowest price for Diesel in the area.
Other item I would check is make sure your fuel filter heater is working.
