Yep and I am gonna try it in my 97 obs just to see if it helps on start-up running B100. Normally I plug it in on a timer set for about 3 hours before I use the truck. Just playing to see what happens.

While cleaning, check the screen that covers the port going to the fuel pressur regulator. they will get clogged and restrict flow and affect preformance. Barney
I have this older type. Is it the standpipe it self that tightens or is it the nut ? Thanks, Terry

I wouldnt spend the money on it. After the truck is running, the engine heat will do what thad does anyway. Spend the money on MODS!!

a bowl heater isnt going to help the B100..we cant run anything over a B10 in the winters up here...i dont think the bowl heater helps much at all..i took my bowl out 2 winters ago and she still fires up every day and has never gelled...i never even pluged her in last year and she always started...

Plugging the motor in will have no effect on the fuel in the tank. Even if the fuel bowl heater did magically work, it would only work on the stuff inside the fuel bowl. The rest of the fuel tank and lines would be plugged with gelled fuel.

Pour some B100 in a clear plastic bottle and stick it in the freezer for 24 hours, or stick it outside if it's cold. That will tell you everything you need to know.
