Is the heater even necessary? If you are running the correct additive for colder weather is there a need for the heater? I am thinking about doing the same thing but this is holding me back. I have browsed for spin on base's with heaters and they are quite expensive compared to the NAPA spin on base without a heater everyone seems to have. I just to not want to complete the mod only to find out my fuel is gelling.

I figured this might help him out as well as myself.

Gelling shouldn't be a issue with winter grade fuel . But it is still a good idea to run a fuel treatment with every tank . Power Service makes some good aniti-gel products.

I just zip tied the loose plugs and extra wire to the rest of the engine harness that runs across the rear of the engine so they won't flop and make a thunking sound. 4 trucks done that way now.

These depictions showing examples of a spin-on fuel filter with a WIF sensor are from a 1996 3500 Cummins. If you'd prefer to keep a Water In Fuel warning, maybe consider getting this part equivilent from NAPA.
