In cold weather, a block heater will provide a rapid start ( of course it does). Inaddition, it will reduce engine wear and provide earlier heater use for occupants. Without a block heater in my 1983 300CD, I could start it with most of the already mentioned procedures (preheat, synthetics, etc.) in temp down to zeroF. Good thoughts guys
