What the Cold Does to Motors:

Cold weather tips: Our friends at Mother Earth News explain that cold weather makes the engine hard to start for two reasons. First, oil thickens when it’s cold, which increases friction and makes it harder for the starter motor to spin the engine. Cold also slows the chemical reaction in the car’s battery, reducing its power output. Battery output is usually rated at 77°F, below which starting power drops drastically. At 5°F a fully charged lead-acid battery has only half its rated amp-hour capacity.

You can ensure that your car will start in the worst weather by keeping the engine or the battery, or both, warm.  After researching several products that heat engines, batteries, and oil pans… we offer you our #1 pick of the decade.  This product has won several awards including Contractor’s Choice, and WOC Best of Show Awards.
