oil pan heaters who uses them?

hay guys i live in alberta and we tend to get a little chilly up here, in the fall i put a 500w silicone oil pan heater on the truck, i dont use it very often just when its below -30
im just wondering if any one else uses them and if there has been any issues, im kinda worried that the thing will start my truck on fire it gets damn hot!!!
so far its been fine but i monitor it very closely when its plugged in,

thanks
Matt

Why not just use the block heater????

All of our trucks have the Block Heater...some models you have to buy the cord as a seperate part.
