1500 watts. 1.5 kW/h. Here in the Northeast electricity runs close to 11c per kW/h. You do the math.

I figure if someone plugs it in when they get home, or, say, after dinner, and leaves it til they get up and around the next morning, 12 hours for some? it will run them almost $60 a month. A lot of change figuring my electric bill rarely goes over $40/month...

Which is why I wait for 20 degrees at night. During the winter it will be plugged in most any time it isn't running. I doubt I will see a big difference in my bill. During the summer I run my well a ton watering my trees. So it should come out about the same.

I suppose if you can afford the turbo diesel what's a little bit more a month to make sure it starts right up fully warmed.

I love the truck. Only issue like I mentioned earlier is scratches in the cheesy plactic instrument panel lens. Anyone know of a product to remove these?
