Notes:

Near Grande Prairie, Canada - At 5 degrees Fahrenheit, the residents of Alberta use electric engine block heaters or headbolt heaters to ease starting their cars in cold weather. They are connected to normal AC power overnight or before driving, via regular power plugs that are fed through a vehicle's grille. This allows easier starting in cold temperatures by keeping the coolant warm. Heaters are also available for motor oil so that the oil does not gel and its viscosity remains low. The rapid heat circulation caused by block heaters also aids the initial vaporization of fuel in the engine; because of this effect, block heaters reduce pollution, as poor fuel vaporization causes much higher emissions.
