It was zero this morning when I went out to start up the VW. Started up fine. Heck even my 91 GP started up with a flick of a key. I think with the wind chill it was -11 today.

Wow you know it is cold if the nozzle are frozen up.
You got to add something to the reservoirs like methyl alcohol to get em flowing.
I use a Prestone de-icer product when it'* bitter cold that takes it to -50.
