it's a gaser problem to. My truck has the battery recommended for it. And if I don't plug it in on cold nights. It will not start in the morning. Battery warmer and engine block warmer. And in the morning my truck will roll coal when i take off. Albino coal little ranger thinks it's a diesel. How cute.
