That's what I thought at first, but it doesn't seem like there should
be any ice left at this point? I will leave the heater running until
I run out of fuel anyway, and see what happens, but at this point, I'm
not sure.

What I can't figure out is why it would stay running for 10 minutes
the first time it quit. Earlier today it ran for a few minutes before
quitting. Now though its just running for a few seconds at a time, if
at all. Intermittent fuel pump?
