Well I tried to get the 1P2299 filter, but Cat doesn't make that part number anymore. Anyone have another part number to try?

I would double dose or maybe add a heater to the cat filter. If it doesn't make through the Cat filter it won't make it through the stocker. I'm just not sure that a less efficient filter would keep you from gelling.

Is your truck even starting or is it gelling while driving?

It's not the filters... It's your fuel blend. I lived in Alaska for 14 years in the interior, -50+. Never gelled but one time, I still had summer fuel in the truck and it hadn't been driven in a month, that happened last winter. I have run Cat water sep and 1r0749 filters for years and currently run a Cat synthetic media for high pressure common rails, much tighter with no gelling issues.

If your unsure of the quality or blend of the fuel then use plenty of your favorite fuel treatment...

For the $10 a bottle I'd double or triple dose. Well worth not screwing around pulling filters off.

Normally it would be while driving, but this go round it was about 5 minutes after a cold start.

Can extra doses hurt anything? Last time I fueled up, about a week ago it was 20, then was up to 40 for a couple days then temp dropped like a stone back to around zero.

Some cleaners / additives yes, but Howes states on the bottle that overuse is not harmful.

The emergency anti gels are the ones you really don't want to overdose on.

Iíve seen guys do a 1:1 on their filters when they gel up, in my opinion itís on the same level as ether as far as harmful.

We use to mix in up to 40% gas in our diesel tank on the farm in emergencies in the winter. Never had fuel system issues, but we didn't make a habit of it.

I use the block heater south of houston. Its not for the benefit of the truck. Creature comfort to help me stay warm on the way to work since its only a 15 minute drive on back roads.
