Greetings. Does the Bozeman airport have any plug ins for block warmers? If not, may I ask what you guys(and gals) with diesels do when parking there in the winter? (please don't suggest selling my truck- I can't afford another right now )

thanks

Glow plugs! Some diesels have two batteries: One to heat the glow plugs which heat the engine, and the second to actually start. I've never driven a diesels but that's what people tell me.

Default yes. thanks but that is not the point.

Yes my diesel has two batteries. The glow plugs do not "heat" the engine. You still need a block warmer for really cold starts or it looks like you are laying down a smoke screen. thanks anyway.

I'm 97% sure there are plug ins by some of the long term parking spots. It would be cheaper to keep your truck at a buddies place vs. paying for parking at KBZN.

Block heaters are very expensive to run; best to put them on a timer to come on a few hours before you need to drive. This is based on experience with my Dodge Cummins Diesel. They are not needed if weather is above 40F.

Not sure what the airport provides.
