Another way to feel the heat without the oil mess, is to place your hand on the radiator. Since the blockheater is plugged into the waterjackets in the block, the water will heat up and start circulating on it's own. Depending on how cold it is, plugging my heater in usually gets the temp. a little above 40C.
