This recent cold snap has just been ridiculous.

That vehicles parked outside start is a testament to M.E. I don’t even bother to plug in the engine heater on my ’15 PU. Then again a friend in Cambridge has diesel that won’t fire up plugged in 24 / 7 and a battery charger connected to both batteries.

As I understand it (I don’t drive diesel vehicles), the low sulfur diesel fuel gels up in a bad way during these cold snaps. An engine block heater won’t help the gelled up fuel in the tank.
