Re: [DML] Driving DMC on salted roads

JC Whitney used to offer cathodic protection that was hooked up to the battery. Don't know if it worked, but ships and boats often use them. Different conditions though.

Hi Folks!

I'm (very) new to the group, and doing my best to soak up as much know-how as I can.

Would a sacrificial anode help with this situation?  I seem to remember a car-maker using them in the past, but I can't recall which one.

If this works as I (in my non-technical level of comprehension) understand, then the current is carried to the zinc anode, which proceeds to do the rusting (oxidizing) before the iron would.  I suppose you would need to make sure that all the rust-able pieces have connectivity.  Does someone here have more info on this possibility?

I would much rather clip one or two of these somewhere on the undercarriage and replace them now and then.than confine my (someday) DMC-12 to the New England driving season.
