1. A block heater. ..

    …for those who asked, is just an electrical coil that heats up your engine coolant to keep the engine block warm. If you’ve ever tried to turn over a seriously cold engine when it’s minus 30, you’d be thankful to have one.

    From the responses, it sounds like it’s much less common than I thought. I’ve never seen a vehicle sold around here that didn’t have one.

  3. bumblemama had a question about winterization in Canada. A block heater is a must have.

    I was surprised to find that block heaters are not standard equipment everywhere, as they are here.

    Tumblr poll: is your vehicle equipped with a block heater, and do you use it through winter?
