    I know many of you down south have no clue what I'm talking about but since the temperature is pushing -20 Celsius where I live I have a few questions for my northern friends here.

    At what temperature should I be plugging the block heater in? I'm guessing anything warmer than -15 probably doesn't make much of a difference if it's plugged in or not. Also does the truck have a thermostat to tell it when to turn block heater on or does it just run non stop when plugged in?
