How long did it take @ 6v to heat the car up sufficently to start it?>
If I still have the Golf next winter, I may try this method for difficult
starts @ work,
while it's been sitting outside all day....

Val Christian tossed this at us ----and with my blockheater burned out
and frost on the carrots.
I decided to test it out ----- lot of fun. But takes a lot of time to
get the heat
right. I started with 5 volts -----4 big NIFE NiCads.
PS : So far BOSCH has only come forward with design voltage (11
Volts they say)
I am waiting for design life . -----anyone have an Idea ? 500 hours ?.
Cold start trick for MIKE in NB lobsterland.
