And now when we had -20'C my Xm didn't work anymore, so I has to drive with my Dyane... Rolling Eyes

It's quite cold to fix fuel system outside now... Why it didn't break in summertime..?

As I don't have any XM or CX, it starts great every morning. And I love driving on snow ...

Yes, -27°C...

It's every winter like that, -30°C and more... And also "normal cars" work quite well, but I agree, it is fucking cold..!

-42°C is lowest temperature where I have driven with my Dyane, at this time I had Eberspächer heater but it didn't work at that temp, so this time there was really cold to drive...

Jasu? do you experiance missfiring with that low temps? and what can you do against it? different fuel? ignition timing?
Very interested. I work as a Diesel calibration engeneer and do cold start as well, but at some stage you get to the limitations of the technolligy...
