    I have finally found a cold start routine that seems to work over 90% of the time for my Trabant. Including temperatures down to -10'c and with a slightly flat battery (slow cranking).

    Open the fuel tap.

    Tap it a few times.

    Count to 25 and pull out the choke fully while you do it.

    Start cranking the engine while pushing the choke in slowly.

    At a given point the engine catches and blipping the throttle gets it going.

    Push the choke in as appropriate.
