Public engine block heaters are commonplace
If you don’t know what these are, lucky you. Engine block heaters help by heating up your car’s fluids, allowing them to pass more freely through your car’s body. When engine oil becomes too viscous, it can impair the performance of your vehicle. Needless to say, those who drive in Alaska should have a couple of block heater cables on hand.
All over Alaska’s parking lots are built-in engine block heaters. Now, you can safely drive around the state without your car’s engine freezing over. Attempting to cold-start your car in freezing temperatures might lead to pretty costly repairs.
