I know they used to light small fires below there fuel tanks to warm up the fuel in Eastern Europe... I’m sure they have found a better way now days ... do feel for you and your struggles with the cold weather ... wish you and your family good luck and stay warm

I have electric heated seat covers... we use them to warm up our glues in the winter ... could you do this to your fuel tank?
We have a lot of inventions))))) we have such covers. and screw the glow plugs into the fuel filter) BUT the simplest thing is not to operate the car and save it), which is what I will do in the coming holidays)

My e50 must come from colder climates as it has the winter pack and rad blind which I've never needed to use

I don't think it would make a difference at all where you are interested to know what parts of Japan it was made for the only thing I benefit from is the twin battery using one for lesure

Hey. I sit at work and think ....
Is it possible to make a "camper module" in EL. That is, "work" everyday life I have a standard salon?. And when you have to go, you just need to take out the standard interior and how to install this "module". That is, all furniture, stove, sink are quickly removable. Himself in shock)))
Why is that?
Because the trends of the past years tell me that:
1. Not many big trips, and when they do happen, it is not very comfortable in the cabin.
2. It makes no sense and it is very expensive to have a second "camper" car, in view of the small number of trips where a camper would be useful.
3. Making a stationary camper out of El is not convenient. In ordinary life, I don't need to carry a house in the cabin)))
What ideas? ))
