I have never used a block heater. My hemi Magnum has almost 300,000 miles and my hemi Ram has almost 200,000 miles. Down to 20, maybe 25 below 0F. Only once I had a problem, around 1989 it got down to -40F or -40C same, btw I went to start my Mazda 323 and the cam shaft broke. I had a 4 cyl 89 Tacoma and managed to get it to start. Had to put it in 4wd low range to make it move, though. I'm a cheap bastid and hate it when my electric bill goes up.
