Coolant heater for 7.3L?

Is anyone running a coolant heater in their 7.3L? I was on one company's (Espar) website and it looks like depending on the model you buy you can adapt it to just about any engine. Their unit is supposed to use only 1 cup of fuel per hour of heat, so theoretically you could run it for 16 hours straight and use only a gallon of fuel. I like the idea of being able to start my truck at operating temperature every time regardless of how far I am from the nearest 110 volt outlet. Not to mention being able to have instant heat in the dead of winter.

the average person who owns a diesel doesn't need that. just let your engine for a minute or two and you'll be fine..................

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
