I use my block heater every night it goes below -15 C (5 F). I plug it in for 2-3 hours on a timer. It's good for the engine and you get heat a lot quicker.

Me too.

I look at that as using Synthetic Oil. May cost a bit more but even if only helps a little its good enough for me. Think of it as preventive maintenance.

I've never used them on my trucks, even here in MN :chevy: I am parked in a garage overnight most of the time, and it usually doesn't get any colder in it than 15. I do have synthetic as well though which helps after being parked outside after a long day's work. :seeya:

I've got 2, the stock block heater and an oil pan heater, using synthetic 0W40 in the winter... it goes down to -40 here in the winter so i can use all the help i can get starting my truck(that and my landlord pays for the electrical bill on the posts in the parking lot).

I have one in truck (basically standard equipment in Canada.... :confused: ).

don't use it though.

But I did replace the stupid 600CCA battery and put in a 1200 CCA. It always turns over and fast, even on the coldest days (-35C).
