    I have seen it happen though I am not sure how what the reaction is that makes it do that. When you have a small leak and the fuel leaks at a certain rate is when I have seen it occurr. It does not have to be near freezing for it to happen.

    Comes from water being in fuel, doesn't have to freeze to crystalize. Just had same problem with one of my trucks.
