The discussion about the ChangFa diesel & generator project got me interested in the project too. I live in central PA, and the power is as likely to go down in an ice storm in winter requiring a subfreezing start.
How hard is it to get diesels started in cold weather? What do you do differently to get them going? How hard are diesels to start if they sit 3 or 4 months between short test / maintenance runs?
How often do you have to change oil in a diesel compared to a gasoline engine? The specs on the Kohler engine on my mower say to change every 100 hours. What's the recommended interval on the ChangFa or other diesels?
