Wait a minute...Won't the Prius now have two plugs? One for block heater, and one for the Plug-In kit!

I'd like to wait until an EV build day, but depending on when I get it, I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long! I'm definitely going to do it myself (or with help from the EV guys). The install is really quite easy.

The Prius actually doesn't have a block heater installed atm. The coolant thermos does almost as good of a job, and no external energy is used. What I really want to do, is put the block heater in the thermos for maximum heat for energy used.
