600 watts. It was my 7.3 diesel that has the 1200 watt. Let me know what you calculate, I'll double it as I had to leave my diesel on for the past 3 days....-10F the past two nights, just need to know how to break it to my wife that the electric bill doubles every winter!

W = V x A
therefore

A = W / V

600/12=5amps or 1200/12=10amps

Im going to search what that would cost and it will be different depending on how much your power costs as its different in different areas.
