New to the site. Lots of good information here. I am new to diesels and looking to purchase a 2004 GMC w/LB7. I am concerned with fuel gelling. How much of a problem is this and what equipment if any comes standard on the DMax in the way of heaters to address fuel gelling, can heaters be added and what precautions can and should be taken? I live in a cold winter climate (todays high 10, tonight below 0) and cannot be afford to be stranded on the roadside.

Not that cold were I am but gelling is not a problem. I use stanadyne p/f, 70000 miles no trouble( should keep my big mouth shut ). She sounds a little like a big rig when first started, but quiets down in 4 or 5 seconds. I think where you by your fuel makes a difference, try to go were the sell a bunch. My station fills all the town school buses so life is good. My .02
