I have a 2004 6.0. It has been between -10 and 20 degrees where I am and my truck has been starting and running fine until today. I started it up and it ran for a few minutes then died. I started again and ran and quit while I was driving. I got it parked, ran to the auto parts store and bought some 911 fuel additive and some anti gel. Followed instructions on the bottles. Fired right up, got warm so I shut it off. Came back about an hour later and it wont start at all. It tries but it will not fire up. Any thoughts?

Yep sounds gelled up, check the filter on the frame rail. I just went through this about a week ago, got ahold of some non-winterized fuel without knowing. I used the 911 it got me home. Bout two hours later truck wouldn't start, pulled the lower fuel filter and I was still gelled up.

Thanks guys. I had a buddy tow it home then plugged it in all night and threw some blankets around the engine. Came out in the morning and started right up.

you should still change both filters, that gelled fuel makes a waxy sh** coating on the filters, it never really goes away.
