Good morning, sorry for delay, my name is ***** ***** you for asking your question, I will try and help you out.

First make sure check engine light comes on and goes off after first turning key on if okay ecm is getting power and it should start after following these steps.

Once fuel gels it is difficult but not impossible to get going without warming up fuel.

If you have a battery charger put on while adding 911 to filters, put the rest in tanks per directions on bottle,I don't know how much you used but don't way over use. if no charger jump with another vehicle to aid in turning engine fast enough to start.

Get some rescue 911 fuel anti gel and add one cap full to each fuel filter and reinstall filters making sure filter/s are full.

If you have a hand pump pump up and try to start,,once started hold at @1200 rpm for 5 minutes to warm up fuel.

If it still won't start use some starting fluid directly into turbo inlet after engine is already cranking,,use very little short little burst is all it takes.
