I'm having problems with fuel gelling in the fuel filter of my dad's '05 Duramax during the winter cold here in California. Can anyone suggest an inline fuel heater that would work?
Thanks for your responses.
I bought one of these about a month ago for my WVO filter. Works great up here in Ontario. Temps have been as low as -10 C. I got the 50 watt model and wired it to the ignition so it's on all the time when the car is running. Cost 100 buck Canadian.
nice item but way to expensive for me!
Not sure if the 05 is the same as my Lbz, but from what I understand, the fuel system uses fuel circulating to cool the computer. I'm no expert on the matter, but it did scare me enough to rule out a tank heater without seperate plumbing(which I'm still trying to learn more about).
I like the looks of the 50watt filter heater looks like enough heat just before hitting the fuel rail.
Oh and Btw, I see this is an old post,(not total dumb newbie) just didn't see any other type info in the D-max forum here.
edit: now I see, thought this might be a much more accurate explanation
I bought a spring flow heater from Utahbiodieselsupply.com and it worked awesome all winter and really reduced the % of diesel mix needed to keep frpm jelling. We had a couple of weeks of 10 below and I had no issues. Nice unit and easy to install.
