That link is funny ! I did my install before that was posted ,, I wouldn't want to drill my

If you have a Marina near you go there and look for the plug receptacle.

I ended up at Bass pro shop and got one.

My co worker after the wife backed out of the drive for the second time now wraps the cord once around the drivers mirror and then plugs it in. That way you have to walk past it look at it while you open the door and if all else fails hopefully look in the mirror to backup. I'll have to see how many times I forget being new this year to the diesel thing.

Embarrassing.
Same here, left before sunrise, 20 miles from home while making a left turn i noticed my cord following me

It would be nice to know what the oil temp was in the OIL PAN on those 10 degree days, a block heater raises the coolant temp in the engine and the coolant is all above the oil pan, since heat rises (what..everyone ALREADY knew that?) I doubt that it does much for the oil in the pan temps. The oil temp sensor is in the block so that isn't telling you anything about the oil pan temps. A good question here is even though the engine fires right up and runs normal just how long before it starts getting proper lubrication -30* and -40* or below makes one wonder even more...I don't use a block heater per say, I am trying the wolverine oil pan heater. I plugged it in last night for my 'experiment' and this morning it is 30* above here where I live in Maine. It's 5am and I just went and checked engine temps and my SGII says the oil and water is 48* so I am going to assume that since the temp sensors are being heated from the oil in the pan that the oil is some what warmer than that. I'll be posting more about this as the air temps continue to decline here as winter approaches.

Oh, and sorry about the hijack, that wasn't my intent rather I was just making a comparison to your info for the sake of conversation.

You could use magnetic heaters on the bottom of your pan. I jb welded 2 of them to my chebie Tahoe, and it started better on those very cold days in Mn
