Additional question regarding the oil pan heaters. Wolverine/Phillips-Temro have heaters that are either without a thermostat, or have a thermostat with two different ranges - 170-200F, and 270-300F.

If I am just using these for the oil pan, wouldn't I want one with a thermostat so it doesn't just heat away perpetually? If so, it seems like the 170-200F range would be the safest/best, as from my research, most oil temps in diesel engines would never exceed 200F....
