    This weekend I added this nice remote control outlet. This gets plugged in before my block heater. That way I can plug the car in when I get home. Then, in the morning I just hit the button on...

    I've had OEM cartridge style heaters in other cars that plug into the block like the Mirage. They work pretty well and I would recommend them. But, I honestly love this heater. Its 1000W vs OEMs...

    Filled up again yesterday. It wasn't the best tank at 42 mpg, but still not too bad.

    Eggman is correct, its very unlikely to hit anything. It will travel up and down with the wheel which its pretty close to. However, whenever I do remove it, I will most likely add a horizontal cut...

    I really have no plans for another version at this point. It would be interesting to make one that is a bit stiffer just to see how it feels. But, as of right now I have no plans to make one.

    In contrast, today I remembered my block heater, and I tried to get good fuel economy coming in. The result was a hair under 51 mpg on the MFD.
