Say it was really really cold........would it be better to cycle your GP's
3,4 or 5 times, then crank,
cycle perhaps twice, then crank & crank.
Assuming you only have so much reserve in your battery and only get one good
chance at it?

I am awaiting to hear back from Hagar or anyone, who can tell me about
preheating your
GP's with only 6v............definately an interesing idea I can tell you.

I thought about putting 12v on my block heater, but the output would be so
small I doubt it would
overcome the cold ! (let alone warm up the engine)

Mike in NB.........where temps are once again beginning to dip down into the
double NEGATIVE digits C
