Depending on what type of injection you are running, I'd say a gasoline primer would be a must at those temps. It would help a lot if you used a block heater first............ 8) JB

storage

I would pour/spray Marvel Mystery Oil thru the carb while running and let the engine die on it - that'll give everything a film of lube to fight the moisture. Drain the entire fuel system and if it's...
