    around the -40 mark. give or take. even unplugged its started but definately didnt like it. plugged in, no prob.

    to the comment above somewhere, all vehicles in alberta for sure, maybe even all of canada now come from factory with block heaters.

    and the other comment about parking lot plugs, yes they get damaged, but most times they are mounted on steel beams, posts, or some other elevated means that not gonna easily get wrecked.

    Probably somewhere in the lower twenties? I don't know. I don't have a temp gauge and cold weather is on camping trips. I live where the weather is always nice :cool:

    pressing the clutch in at that temp feels like sticking your boot in a barrel of molasses. She started up but was *not* happy about it.

    Definitely in the -40C. Blowing wind as well with the front of the truck buried under the snow for about 12 hrs. She turned over about 5 times, started, screamed in pain and stalled. Tried again and she had no issues.
