I do live in MN, and yes a tiny town north of Duluth here got to -56 actual temperature. Coldest temps come when the wind isn’t blowing. It was in -30 to -20 all day in twin cities since Monday evening. I don’t even want to look at what it was in International Falls, MN.

No kidding but when the temperature gets to we’re it was this week in the Midwest it took its toll on car batteries big time. And remember vehicles don’t come with block heaters unless yo order them with one or install one yourself. So when it gets to these type of temperatures that’s extremely cold on anything left outside.

Stores made a killing on batteries this week! If you need one, probably good luck finding one My garage was 10 degrees so it wasnít terrible.

You should be fine, you have a newer car correct? Mine stayed outside from Sunday to Tuesday afternoon (cold came in Monday evening) and it started fine. My oil temp was -7.
