If the actual GM heater element looks like a good idea, a generic cord may fit:
The plug on the end of that cord looks like it would plug right into the oil pan heater on the gas car:
My car has the oil pan heater and with the weather in Michigan I doubt I will ever use it. My truck on the other hand does not like the cold too much.

So I've had my cruze diesel since July an so far all has been good (1st diesel by the way). Now that the weather is getting colder (Maryland) I've been using the remote start in the mornings. Problem is that my mpg's drop to about 28 compared to almost 42 during the summer. Does Idiling kill the mpg that much, would the oil pan heater help with this? 28 mpg's just ain't enough.
I only use the remote start on the diesel for defrosting, it doesn't really heat the car even with the electric heat.
The one thing I can't figure out though is how to extend the remote start another 10 minutes. Every time I try to do what the book says it just shuts off. I got it to work once, but no such luck since.
