  17. NThat is celcius temperatures in Saskatchewan we have severe cold temperature warnings out where bare skin can freeze in less than two minutes. Cars parking outside have block heater installed in the engine block to keep water and oil comparitively warm to help starting. You plug them in to a outdoor house receptical it uses about 500 watts .The oil on a dipstick if not plugged looks like molasses and if the car starts when you drive away feels like you are towing something and you are riding on board. How is the old Moggy 8 hope you are looking after her.
