The new Sport Cub owners haven 't had their planes long enough to have to deal with this issue...perhaps the larger group will have answers.

It is 12 degrees here today and I'm about to go over and start my PA-12 which has been preheating all night. I use a 75 watt oilpan heater on the Lycoming. What are you guys using on the 0-200? It would be nice to use something which didn't add to the weight. With the composite parts on the Sport Cub, some of the traditional quick solutions would probably be too hot for those materials on this aircraft. Ralph
