Just wondering whether anyone has considered installing an electric radiator fan on their Sprinter? These tend to be more efficient in terms of fuel economy as they are only running when necessary. Plus the lack of the fan load supposedly reduces wear and tear on the water pump. At least that's why I went with a Black Magic electric fan on a Toyota V6 pickup I had awhile back.

Hmmm, interesting. So there's an electric push fan in front of the radiatior, and a belt driven pull fan behind the radiator? I've only seen single fans in my past vehicles.

The belt driven fan is clutched so the drag is not as bad as it may seem.
