we have never had good luck with it. maybe it was a fluke but bp seems to run better, at least in ours. im not sure if its the chip or the truck. some respond different to different fuel.

I once started a stubborn PSD on hair spray. I know they say not to use ether and I'm not sure that the Aqua Net was better for it but it worked.

I do have to say I've never seen a psd that didn't have bad glow plugs. my ISX Cummins starts pretty easy without glow plugs or a block heater.

my 7.3 starts no problems even when the temps reach in the low teens. Just wait for the "wait to start" light shuts off, and crank it over.

I had my first experience with bad fuel on my last tank. Mat the pedal on the freeway and it takes forever to get moving faster.
