Still trying to figure out what a volt meter is going to do for me if my glow igniter battery dies.

Is it sort of like using the gas gauge in my car to tell me the tank is empty AFTER I run out of gas and I'm sitting on the side of the road?

What he is trying to say is; Charge your glo starter before a road trip, and buy one of those $5.00 D-cell glo starters that fit in your hand like a can of soda, so you can use it in situations like his. That way you don't confuse some readers like me, on a Nitro Forum.

Mission accomplished pinky.....I'm confused

If this thread does nothing else other than drive home the fact that a proper education in English grammar is crucial to a person's success in the world, then it hasn't been a total waste of time for us all...
