This was on the old board, but as is is most useful to us dieselers.

Fleetguard made some propane heaters, and another company by the name hilton I think did to. I have the fleetguard numbers at home I'll post them later.

I found the Hilton info, but its at home.

The best thing is Espar and Webasto their systems have a programable controller that you can set to come on at different times.

www.espar.com

www.webasto-us.com


Here are some Fleetguard propane engine heater part #:

820-5000 5000BTUs about 1450watts
820-5043 10,000BTUs about 2900watts

Pretty cool/hot little units from espar.com, just wonder what the prices are for those. So I sent an email to them to find out. $1100-1200 for the other ones are definately out of my price range.

Anyone know of a 12V engine warmer?

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,

Did they quote you in U.S. dollars? Both companies are "out of the country".

I am leaning towards the Webasto units.

Sorry about that John. I was wrong in the prices. As copied and pasted from their web page. The $1569 and the $1649 prices are the "sale" prices. I don't have a diesel, but a nice warm truck shortly after starting it would be nice. It was -2 here in St. Louis last night.

The Espar timer IIRC can to programed for a week.

The Webasco sounded like a daily thing.

JC Whitney use to sell the Fleet Guard Unit (no timer) IIRC $ were about $300.00. You supply the tankand supply hose.

Jeff for the cost the soft plug heaters are the best if you have a current bush to use. :D
