The factory equipped the 1995 E300 with a block heater. Anyone know what wattage it is? Just curious as I have it on a timer some mornings.

IIRC, the factory OM606 block heater located below the exhaust manifold (between #5&6) draws 500 Watts

Keep in mind that we're talking US AC currency. In other words, 500Watt/120V = 4.17Amps approx. On heater blocks outside the American continent that use 230V AC that current draw would be about half.

And no, you cannot put a US heater plug on a Euro car or vice versa.
