Hi all,

Left 1986 Type 44 Turbo Quattro 3 days at temps -20C to -10C without
starting. When it was -12C, car engine turned over slowly. Radio indicated
"code", One boost from the CAA and car started quickly. Battery is 1 year
old from the Canadian Automobile Association. I start car every 2 days and
run for 10 minutes.

Don't use the car much. But if the temp is that cold for days, then was
advised by CAA man to start every day and let run.
