And as an added bonus, if it's REALLY cold outside, just grab the head on your engine while the heater's on it (with your gloves on of course)....warms the fingers up rather nicely!

Depends on the temperature outside. If it's below 40 or so, it can take a while, but if it's above that it takes about 10 minutes max.

I will say I have a heat gun and Mark's Engine Warmer, I haven't touched the heat gun since I bought the warmer. This is really worth the money, and works alot better than a heat gun.

Don't think I'll have to worry about temps that low down here in south florida. At least not very often, besides most would think its freezing at that temp and prolly stay home and not race Can the heater be left on for long periods of time or should it come off as soon as necessary when the temp of the engine is up?

The pictures I posted were after 25-30 minutes. The engine's for the most part are ready to fire up in about 15 minutes and will be around 180-200 depending on ambiant temps as boomgagem mentioned.

Once the temp is at it's highest, you can just let it simmer for as long as you want. I have left mine on and walked away and have come back 4 hours later and it is still sitting at the same temp it was when I left. The element only gets so hot so it can't continue to rise in temps unless you introduce more current which would probably fry it anyway.
