My cousin actually tried this, killed his 7.3 in under a month. If you do this use VERY VERY little, In my experience it causes starting problems and gummy build up.

As for the cp3 pump- if it had enough fuel to crank the engine, I doubt there is damage.

should I be running the red bottle? (power service 911)
truck ran fine yesterday mind you all afternoon. its a cummins.
the diesel 911 is for when it is gelled already. the white bottle is for keeping it from gelling. if it gets cold enough nothing will stop gelling. once it has gelled add some diesel 911 and fuel to your new filter. add the rest to your tank. if your lucky it will clear up.

i usually use howes anti gel, if i cant find it i use power service. both are great products. they are about the only thing you will see a trucker put in a semi.
