Start with changing the "Fuel Filter" (Not a wasted effort either way)...Then put some additives into the Fuel (Injector Cleaner), anything else fuel related (Not wasted effort either)..Good Luck. De-Icer, for fuel...may have water in fuel. Especially if you purchased gas and the station you got it at was nearing the bottom of there fuel tanks...Water floats in fuel, so if your buying the bottom of the gas tank at gas station...your getting some water...good Luck
