Hi Lio,
No idea at the moment - I'll look into it ;-)

Absolutely. No probs in -35 C. We drive in even colder weather. As long as we can keep the fuel liquid.
(My old Corona Mk-II would even keep T-shirt warm in - 30)
Heard that Arctic Trucks broke the rear springs when they took to LCs to the south pole, but there it gets even colder.

Hi Ugo

Sa long as I know D4D is not so effective to warm the car...
cheers

The 100 I haven't taken to the north yet. Moved from there in 1992.
Around here it doesn't get colder than -15 at the worst, maybe -20 a bit
inland. No probs with that so far. The 100 diesel has, btw, a power
heater, some kind of viscous friction heater that helps the engine heating
up. It generates only 1400 watts of heat, + it also increases the idle
rev. Not much, but it helps. I know that diesels might get cold while
idling because of their high efficiency.
My 100 "grew up" in temps of +20 to +40-something all year. That was more
of a problem, with 40 C outside, + the sun baking, and without a 2nd AC
for the rear. But not too bad. Engine always stayed cool as a cucumber.

So it seems like you don't need auxiliary heating(sort of 'webasto') for the
100 series?

Maybe not as long as the engine is running, but it would be very helpful
for heating it up before starting, if you don't have an electric block
heater connected to the mains.
