Mitsubishi Fuso is offering an oil-pan heater option to aid in starting its medium-duty trucks in cold weather. It replaces block heaters that were available on earlier Fuso FE and FG models.
Being installed on the oil pan, the new heater can directly warm cold engine oil to reduce viscosity and required starting torque more efficiently than can a block heater, says the company. As the heat rises, the block and components above are warmed as well, to help reduce cold-start engine wear.
The heater generates 420W of heat, and comes with an integral AC power cord for use with standard 115-120 VAC outlets and extension cords.
