Depending upon what one pays for cost per kW or if some are off the grid is a factor.Then throw in the cost of the block heater and that has to be taken into consideration.Have not done enough research on a block heater`s power consumption to add this into the equation.
The Chebby only gets started up about twice a day..Going to work and coming home.Girlfriend does all the stop and shop stuff.
Thank you guys for making light to all these ideas as they are much appreciated.
Now going all the way back to my Geo Metro days and adding slick50 it seemed to add more mpg.Is that the case with these newer cars using synthetic?
