I went to Canadian Tire today and studied the frost plug block heater.

1. It looks like CTC on-line is not set up for US business

2. The one CTC sells for the 1.6 diesel is the same for the A2 gassers.

3. It's made by the Canadian subsidiary of a US company.

Here's the dope.

Made by Canadian sub of :

Eden Prairie MN, USA
