Hi all

I hope you don't mind me asking this here. Glow plugs - I always thought they were used only for assisting a cold start on a diesel and once the engine was running they were not used. I guess they have more use on todays more advanced and therefore powerful/effiecent/clean diesel lumps? Just satisfying my curiosity and apparent dumbness

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
Currently in Bob925's garage:
2015 '65 Vauxhall Astra SRi, and a variety of "lovely" buses
