The fitting of an engine block heater does not eliminate the need for antifreeze.

Engines are more difficult to start when the ambient temperature is very low. In geographical areas where temperatures below 14°F (-10°C) are experienced frequently, it is advisable to fit an engine block heater. The block heater will have an insulated connector at the front of the vehicle, which is connected to a mains supply using a suitable extension cable. The heater can remain in use overnight, if required. Typically, an engine block heater will use between 0.4 and 1 kWh.
