My fuel froze up on me last winter untill I put some winter fuel treatment into it. This year I want to get a jump on it so at what temp should I be putting it in at? It's already getting below 0 at night here.
We had a problem last year in timmins Ontario, when the temperature hit -25*c at night, it gelled up all the raccor water separators, This was the first time I seen it happen. It looked amazing how the little crystals where moving around
Man was this ever a long night night
Yeah I have heard of them but never saw them for pickups. I was also told about an oilpan heater that works the same way as the fueltank heater but never saw them either. Anyone know of a company that might sell stuff like this?
I've been looking at those heaters, I was looking at the cabin/ engine heater for several years but just can't seem to part with my money for one. I was also lookig at the Espar brand. I'm sure I will see them again this year at the truck show in Louisville in a month and get all jackup up about buying one then doing nothing about it.
I drove a school bus for a few days that was equipped with a webasto. In one word… Awesome. In two hours it could warm the coolant up to the point where warmish air came from the heater at startup.
I wanted one for my pickup but they are expensive. I came up with a poorman's solution. I took one of those 300$ gensets from Canadian tire and built a new frame for it that mounts under the box of my truck. It has removable panels to protect it while driving. I ran the wires up to the toolbox were I’m mounting the generators original panel. From there I’m running a cable to the bumper( maybe the cab too) where I can plug the block heater into the generator.
I figure the gas generator is much easier to start in the cold, it will run the block heater, I could leave it running all night for cheap, and I can plug the 5th wheel into it while camping.
