Ran mine in -25 actual temp last week, but I started out from a heated garage. Coldest I've started the truck outside was this morning at -17, and I forgot to plug it in last night. It started right up, but ran rough for a minute or so.

Yah no problems so far up here in northern alberta and we had -30 to -40 pretty steady last month and a bit. Cold starts without the block heater are usually avoided but worst case scenario it fires up better cold at -40 then the wifes jeep..

Ran today, -30C before the wind, will run again tomorrow -33C before the wind, ran all last week in the mid -20's and will run all next week (actually next 1.5-2 months haha) in the mid -20's.

I like how quick it warms up with the old supplemental heater.

We get down to -40ish up here in northern British Columbia. So far no issues, it doesn't complain as much in the cold as my 6 l did. I normally plug in when it gets -20 (-5 f) or below.

I haven't had any when I was all stock and now that I'm deleted I have no worries. I always run 8 oz of power service( white bottle) in every tank in the winter months and knock on wood have never gelled any vehicle I've had. I also make sure I'm running fuel that is actually blended and not the caseys fuel or fuel from stations that only add an additive
