I lived right outside of Duluth, MN. my first 25 years of life. 40 below was typical many winter nights. this is what I used:
Kat's 13100 1000 Watt Aluminum Circulating Tank Heater : Amazon.com : Automotive Kat's 13100 1000 Watt Aluminum Circulating Tank Heater : Amazon.com : Automotive

I would plug it into the outdoor light, hit the switch an hour before I was ready to leave, the car was toasty warm when I started it. I would also say replace the battery, it just IMO not going to last. Lighter oil is a must. Just don't forget to unplug before you leave. I only did that once...
