The gas gage on my truck (a Nissan) went and I ran out of gas. It showed almost 3/4 on the gage.

I thought that I had frozen water in the lines, or at least thought that it was a possible problem.

My buddy says that I could put a gas-line drier (Methanol) in it. I says, but I've been using ethanol gas in it, isn't that enough?

As a side point, when I put the drier in, you could hear it hitting the bottom of the tank. When I put a gal of gas in, it started right up.

So, is Ethanol enough?

Ethanol will draw in moister from the atmosphere,so go to a non ethanol gas or keep using the "gas dryer".
