We have had to plug ours in for years, Our 94.5 is a slave to the plug when it gets cold, My 95 isnt so bad if its run daily. Our new 95 we havent had long enough but it likes the glow plugs bad enough as it is so im sure it will want to be plugged in

Glow plugs would help our newest 95 but our 94.5 is a lost cause, its had 2 sets of plugs through it and it doesnt start much easier. just an old truck that doesnt like cold

I have never plugged any of my PSDs in . Just have always stayed on top of the gp system . That and good winter fuel additives to keep from gelling .
