i was on my cell for the other so im sure it gave the mobile site.

thinking about running it on the coolant system on my 7.3. i was looking to get one in my old k5. if nothing else it will keep from waking the dead in the morning (5am) when i fire the pig up to let her warm up. im sure ill still have her sit for a couple min, but maybe not as long, and not as much fuel as im doing now. ive read a lot about running them cold and all the damage it does. i need to look into the cost of the electric its going to take to run this for a couple hours every morning.

another thing im looking for is instant heat in the morning. i take my one year old to school when i leave for work and id rather not have him in the cold. maybe im raising a puss. lol

I've always used the block heater, that will get the radiator slightly warm to the touch.
