I -just- purchased the 'Model 16'(250watt) for my F150.
I asked Kevin @ Wolverine some questions.
This is what he had to say.
To answer your question on 100 deg F (bubbling oil) NO!! That average operating temp of oil in your engine on a hot summer day is maybe
200F. You start to damage oil around 280+F. We did oil testing with from a test stand with our 1000 watt #80 on a Cummins truck pan
after 1000 hours at 200F. No damage, no carbonization, no boiling.
I think it's safe to say your oil won't burn.
Also, Wolverine said the KAT's pads are a thinner material, supposedly a lesser quality product. Wolverine offers CE rated and non-CE rated pads (no stamp) same product.
Also, I plan to run at least 4 hours a shot to warm up the block along with the oil, too.
Just need the timer.
