    Anyone know where we can get an engine block heater? My mpg takes a giant plunge in the winter due to warm up time and I want to reduce that if I can.

    i'll toss in my 3 cents worth as I own a lot of vehicles (up to 14 now) and most sit for long periods of time.

    Plastic gas tanks don't rust inside.
    I've never used fuel stabilizer even in vehicles that have sat for 6 years.
    Air pressure in the tires pump as much in as you feel comfortable. I park with at least 50 psi in each tire. Even ones with a max of 35 psi.
    Don't use moth balls or dryer sheets for keeping the mice out. Best thing to use is Irish Spring soap. Moth balls and dryer sheets lose their scent very quick, typically with in a couple weeks. Irish spring will last for years.
