Peplow:You are right!!! the guy lives in Kansas, I looked up your info by mistake!!, so no need for the temp/start thing but he still needs the remote starter to run the AIR for a few min. Someone from the cold parts of Canada may use my advice though.TMFTwitty:Motors do hate running for short time periods, but it is a trade off of keeping the car warm enough to start and saving gas. Putting many cars outside in -22f or -30c for 8 hours can make them not want to start or be very hard on them when they do start. Where I live it can get even colder.After 2 hours the car engine would still be a little warm if it is large, even in -20f, and starting it for 10 min will get it up to operating temperature. It also heats up the battery, as often a cold battery will not turn the car either. The battery should get most of it's energy replaced in 10 min.I just replaced my wife's car battery last year. I put in a battery with 1000 cold cranking amps. This was the biggest battery that I could fit in her car.
