Hello


I've been reading about starting diesels in the winter and read that the battery loses some of it's power in cold weather. Is it worth making something like a cover to put over the battery overnight if the car is parked outside ?
Are there any other ideas to keep the engine from getting too cold if it's left outside overnight ?

I have also found that with my 306 diesel it helps if I floor the accelerator pedal before I turn the ignition key........don't know why,in my previous diesel my foot wasn't on the pedal at all.

Thanks.

I have had diesels for years and it has never been so cold that the car hasnt started,if your battery still has a decent charge in it you should be ok. (unless it gets really cold) Boring bit-

Where I live it can get really nippy in the winter.
Pity there wasn't a battery that you could just unclip and take inside when it's really cold and leave in a warm kitchen or laundry room, then next day just take it back out put back in it's compartment and you are ready to go.
I suppose someone good at DIY could make up quick release clips. :)
