They add two electric battery blankets, or plates under the battery, and possibly even add another block heater on the other side of the engine.As far as the people in Alaska, I wonder if they raise the idle speed to 1,200 or something like that.
In short, to keep from freezing to death. I didn't spend much time out this winter but last year my coldest night out was 18 below zero. Call me a sissy, but I can't hack it. My typical night burns about 2 gallons. To put it into perspective, back in my big truck days we hardly ever shut the truck off and it burned about a gallon an hour at idle.In todays expensive world why on Gods Green Earth would you idle it so much, wasting all that fuel?
Lot of misinformation here and some accurate information. In short, the white truck in the picture just happened to be there (4 well frag going on at my ranch). It belonged to the company that provides the lubrication for the wire line and fraq boys.I have a question in regards to the last comment. I thought the truck regens on its own, if this is true than why would you ask if anyone after idling overnight would have to regen sooner than normal?
What I mean is how would you know you regen sooner than normal if the truck does it on its own?
Also can the truck regen during a idle?
That shop should have been responsible for all those repairs caused by their negligence.the shop told the young "pattuan" driver to return to the shop. By the time he arrived,
there was smoke and codes and alarms. And a brand new hole burnt through the finderwell and a bundle of copper wires hanging down, also burnt.
The bill equated to roughly the cost of 50 hotel rooms/nights.
I for one will be glad when all this DEF, DPF, SNG, EGR, XYZ stuff just goes away.
