    So far the coldest I've seen is +18F and the valves were clacking for a minute or so, but otherwise no problems. Just scraped the windshield & headed off.

I am going to see how the optima holds up. i might just get the magnetic oil pan heater as i have plans to move to florida so i might not want the block heater. you should be fine with those temps.
