    I have zero experience with this stuff as I live where the temp doesn't quite hit ice box status. Don't they make an oil warmer/circulator? Might be cheaper and easier to put on but like I said I have no experience with this sorta thing. Post back up after you get it all taken care of and let me know what you did and how it worked out...I'm just curious.

    try this: http://www.wolverineheater.com/
    or this:http://www.homeandbeyond.com/prod-0022151.html
    they also make one that replaces a freeze plug on the block. the dealer near you probably evens stocks it.
