i never noticed that. but i have a battery tender on mine in the winter, so it always starts up first time! sucks that its 25 in your garage........ DO YOU GOT F'IN SNOW ON THE GOUND?!?!?!
I have a lake in my backyard so its always nearly 6 to 8 degrees cooler at my house. We had snow Sunday however it didnt stick.
We are having an artic blast this week highs in high 20's lows in teens in some places. My Garage gets hit from the North wind off the lake so that metal garage door doesnt insulate anything .
I'm actually working on building a new house as we speak they break ground when it warms up. My next 40x40 shop will soon or later be blown in insulated.
I'm going to Hook up my Camaro on its battery tender when I get home tonight.
I have been dealing with cold weather and starting all kinds of equipment from large trucks to tractors to railroad engines for almost 60 years. When a battery is sitting on rubber or felt it is for vibration protection, not cold. Your battery will cool at the same rate no matter what it is sitting on. We have been down to zero here this winter and my Camaro cranks very well.
That makes sense im just curious why Trucks get battery thermal socks ( whatever they are called ) and Camaro's dont.
I also wonder if Camaros up north get different batteries than cars that come down south do. I know if you walk into a autopart store up north yalls batteries are high cold cranking amp batteries where down here they dont stock many of those since normally it doesnt get real cold.
wonder if the thicker oil weight im using has a lot to do with it also? hmmmmm
Scott its not because his car was sold by you and mine was sold by Well lol SHUDDUP Caveman
