Just wondering if any one on here has done much driving and over night camping in the snow,
I'm heading up to the high country for an over night trip next month. Wondering what these old cars i like to start the next morning in freezing cold? Mine it's a little hard to stay now but I'm replacjng the glow plugs before i go.
Does any one recommend what brand to buy? And does any one have any other tips or ideas to help start these old girls in snow conditions?
Cheers Daniel.

make sure you have a good anti freeze mix in your cooling system, Other wise it can freeze in the block, Not good. Make sure you get a alpine mix diesel, If you fill up close to the high country you should get it.

Im replacing the coolant and radiator hoses and bypass hose it's still got the original breaded hoses.
And I've looked into buying An additive for the fuel.
Can't wait to hit the snow it's gonna b diffrent

Also if it's gonna freeze overnight - don't put your handbrake on!! Chock the wheels with a rock or two.
