I'm a brand new owener in Montana. All my other vehicles have headbolt heaters to insure starting in very cold temperatures. Does the Prius need one and if not, why not?

Some dealers know, some don't. Owners in Minnesota and Canada report no trouble at all. Reasons include:

1. thermos bottle stores hot engine coolant between running sessions.

2. engine is cranked up to speed before compression, fuel and spark are applied (unlike conventional engines).

Got question for you.. Has anyone thought of or tried using a separate in car heater like the one you plug into the lighter socket, in the dash to make heat in the front seat area so you dont have to run the car fan and heater,in order to help the milage factor ??

Thanks---Joe
