Default Plug-in heaters

Lived in Interior Alaska were it routinely drops to -60F. A two-cycle Skidoo will start with lots of encouragement but a vehicle will not unless it has 1) battery heater, 2) oil pan heater, 3) coolant line heater.
Then, maybe, it may start. A small milk barn heater modified to lay on its side works well, too. If you need quick start a propane heater works very well but slightly dangerous. Once the temp gets to -20F I parked the car for the winter and drove the Skidoo aka snowmachine, and at -45 I parked it because that is too dang cold. Believe me, -64F is very, very cold. At that temp you need two things: lots of hot coffee and your sweetie.
