What temp do folks start having start problems with these, before the start plugging them in? Also, I wonder if 0w-30 or 5W-30/40 makes a difference. My F350 7.3 will start at 20 below with 10W-30 but I have to cycle 2 or 3 times with 15W-40, even synthetic?
Depending on how long you leave it parked I guess. When you start seeing 15 degree numbers - good idea to plug it in & double cycle the glow plugs when you fire things up. You really don't need to run zero degree euro oil. 5-40 should do the job just fine.
If you are dealing with the -20 -30F I see here at times, a battery warmer is also not a bad idea to have - along with the block heater.
