These two facts make it imperative that you use a battery blanket or pad to extend the life of your battery, and assist in your cold weather starting requirements. Although the containers carry instructions, measuring the «safe» proportions required is just too hard. If you feel that you must use this stuff, I suggest that you have a starting-fluid injection kit installed instead; it’s safe and effective. Cold Weather Grille CoverA winter front, or cold weather cover, is designed to be used in ambient temperatures below 30F; especially during extended idle conditions, to reduce condensation build-up within the engine crankcase.
During starting, a similar process occurs—while the “wait to start” lamp is illuminated, electrical energy from the batteries is used to heat the tips of these glow plugs. All spring packs are custom made and installed by National Spring in El Cajon, CA. A special duel shock set-up was designed by Ted Kendall Engineering in Lakeside, CA. Shocks are Rancho 9000 adjustable set on their light setting. STEERING: Stock steering. After start-up when the headlights are on, they blink, dim or flutter somewhat.
Biodiesel inherently has a greater risk of wax build-up and microbial growth than ULSD at cold temperatures. Try breathing when it’s 96° below zero!! (That’s 128 degrees below freezing!) In these temperatures, metal can crystallize and snap, tires reach their glass-transition point and crack, lubricants become solid and diesel turns to syrup. Diesel drivers everywhere are thankful that diesels have become easier to start in cold weather. Extends life of battery by reducing strain of cold weather starts.
