Let­ters: No­mad, Ster­rato, women

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

Since JJ Lasne (Novem­ber let­ters) has ap­par­ently not been to Canada, a few words on cold-weather ve­hi­cle­op­er­a­tion here. The last time I ran a ve­hi­cle overnight to keep it from freez­ing was 50 years ago. It was a com­pany pick-up truck and the out­side tem­per­a­ture was -47ºC. Most peo­ple where I live (Saskatchew­an) would be quite upset if their ve­hi­cle did not start af­ter sit­ting out­side overnight at -30ºC. Al­most ev­ery­one uses elec­tric block heaters to en­sure starts down to -40ºC. John Preikschat
