Smart CDI -29C cold start
8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely
starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed,
which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard
at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel
antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.

2000 VW New Beetle TDI. Cold start at -26F (-32C) actual temperature after

about -15F previously, as you can see it didn't do so well at this temp.
Audi A6 2.5tdi AEL cold start -26C°
Starting car after standing 24 hours in -30 degrees. Before start the car
was plugged in about 1 hour. The battery voltage went so low that Boostgauge changes color :) It does so if the
voltage drops. Also the plugs didn't glow because the water temperature was
over +2C :)

begins! At first i tryed to fully pull the choke lever and start engine.
There was little rpm - motor oil was too cold and sticky, starter can`t
At the second i turn on the light to make little load to battery, to warm
it up and mix the electrolite inside.
At the third i turn on the starter and motor reluctantly maked flashes, and
