Engine pre-heaters!

Down here in deepest darkest Peterborough it is getting a bit cold to say the least. Allow me to offer an example. I was on the way to work on Thursday morning, went outsdie, car all iced up etc. I placed my trusty breakfast banana on the Gas meter cupboard outside to defrost the Alfa and the girls fiesta. About 15 mins total.

My banana was stuck firm to the meter cupboard at on removal had iced around the outside. Yum, crunchy banana.

Now to the point.

How much are them electric, plug car into house, engine coolant warm up device things?

I need one, not becasue I am a big girl, simply to save my banana!

I thank you.

All info. gladly recieved.

155 Q4

we have them in work built into bt transit vans it has a little clock to set when it comes on all you do is set time turn heater to number one and go to van in morn to find cab and engine warm without having to have engine running like some that give insurance probs but they are deisel powered and have their own exhaust (little one) even a little tap on back door which provides you with hot water to get a wash with its called an eiberspacher excuse the selling but they are great in winter especially when your mates van has it but doesnt know how to set it and im not tellin him there will be a petrol version ,one note they kill the battery after 1 year on the trany.
