After reading some of the posts on heaters for our additional fuel filters, I’m thinking that a heater option might not be bad to have (use a separate switch to activate the heater). Is there a heated head the works with the CAT filters?

After spending some time in the snow (Yosemite) 7 days, Ahh Bliss. I was worried about the same issue, with the Nictane set-up. Everything seemed fine, but on the way home I had my Fuel Gauge drop from full to empty, light went on, freaked me out, stopped, truck ran fine, but got me thinking something might have jelled around the sensor or something, Still a Mystery. I guess Nick would be the guy to chime in on this,,,,,

speedracer,


the fuel level sender may have went crazy on you.. its in the tank and i doubt it had anything to do with the weather. so far of the 300+ kits out there i haven't heard of any gelling problems. as long as you run a good additive (like the 409) when its cold you should be fine. AFAIK there is no heater option for the head itself although i have something in the works..

Well Nick I figured it was something to do with the tank itself, since I have the Transferflow, who knows. I have been very happy with your set-up, dealer that installed it was mighty impressed also. When you get the heater deal figured out, I am buying one.

I saw a pair of heated socks that run off of a battery in a catalog the other day. Maybe we could slip of of the socks over the Cat filter?

I have a CAT filter on the frame. It has been -45 celcius and running with a good fuel additive. I have not had any problems.

I've got 9500 miles / 250 hours on my Cat 0750 filter. We'll see this weekend if I have any problems letting it sit outside. Right now it's in the garage AND plugged in.



ps, I will change it at 10K...and when it warms up a bit.
