Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

I just realized that turning the heat to red in the car will engage the water pump, increasing flow. I may experiment with operating the oem pump without the electric heater on. Also I didn't even consider the possibility the heater tank could be uninsulated. So a couple of potential cures could be ...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

As far as I know, there is no "valve" on the heater core. So turning to red shouldn't be required. I have no check valve either. Simply cut the factory hose and ran it in/out the diesel heater. So now when using the electric heater, the coolant flows through the diesel heater as part of th...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

I have found that the heat output is less than I had expected. Well actually its exactly what I initially expected, but after reading some posts I thought it would be more. Its rated at 5kw. Which is the same as the electric heater, no? So my initial thoughts were that it was going to be similar to ...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

Ok, great info, thank you.

I have managed to fit 4L tank without any fuss.

At my current commute, that's roughly a weeks worth of heat. The new commute will be about 3 days of heat. So a bit of a bummer but not terrible I guess. Maybe next year fab something up for a rear tank.

Re: Dead Charger Repair, How To (Summary and Discussion)

I called my local Mits dealer here in Canada. Charger is still ~$4300cad.

If the reduced cost charger is available in the US, I would probably buy one. Then if mine blows, I can install the new one and repair the old on a relaxed schedule without any real loss of use of the vehicle.
