Re: Convince me as to why I want a diesel

This is the factor that is almost always overlooked, or at least downplayed by those who simply try to recoup the option premium with fuel savings. Although this is a new model we do have some some...

Re: Starting Issues in the cold

Ours has started numerous times after a 12 hr soak at -30F. Just make sure your fuel meets the cold temp spec.

Re: Towing Review//Engine Heat

FWIW there are thousands and thousands of Harleys running stop and go traffic in summer heat at 260-270 oil temps without any adverse effects on the oil. I have seen mine there many times.

Re: First oil change some info and comments

That's what I will do. Maybe pull the plug after to see if any residual left behind. Surprisingly, on both our MB you can suck more out with the MityVac than you can get out by pulling the plug.

Re: Cold start advise?

I lifted this off the Cummins site. Apparently the fuel heaters on some of the trucks was not activated from the factory. Might be something to look into with your dealers??

Re: Stanadyne and capless fillers

Why not put the little white funnel in a zip-lock bag after each use?

Re: Cold start advise?

It's the fuel. Use additive until you can get to the dealer. Phone ahead to make sure they have fuel filters and get them changed. Only fuel up at high volume stations or truck stops.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Will, did you notice if they come with a funnel to get past both flaps in the filler in case you need to fill from a container? I know they ship the new Cummins diesels with a funnel for this purpose.
