    Well your an exception. I'm talking about everyone else out there who doesn't realize that before winter check your battery and coolant.

    Honestly surprised my car fired right up with no hints of struggle after sitting for 6 days.

    Coolant? It came from the factory with that. I don't need to check it.

    Guys we are car enthusiasts, don't be so lazy. Check your coolant, make some if you need more. Orange food coloring and some water, done. Green or blue works too.

    Obv's your homebrew needs a couple bottles of vodka and hand sanitizer. To prevent freezing.

    LoL! Sorry we're out of sync.
    Is the boiling point of alcohol significantly lower than glycol? Lower than water?
    Ever heard of shitty oil change places putting washer fluid to top up coolant?

    I dunno why you post a serious comment when I was making a sarcastic remark on my original post. Gave you a couple chances to understand but no dice. You still somehow thought I dunno what coolant is for. There, I laid it out.

    Company car started fine this morning, idled it for 30 seconds, started driving and it died 500m down the road. Took me nearly an hour to bump start it off to the side of the road (thank god for a strong AGM battery) and finally when I was about to take my BMW to work I got the company car started again. I suspect frozen fuel lines.

    Leaving the orgy in Airdrie this morning mine read -30. The last two days have officially been the coldest Calgary has had in 80 years (for those days)

    I find a little bit of February -30 a lot more palatable considering how mild our December and January were this winter.
