Frank and you both have this right, IMO. No worries at all. I think the whole thing can be totally passive on the heater hose circuit without pumps or controls. If you want an external heat source for really cold overnights, you can place a tank-type heater in a loop on your tank system, on a timer.
It won't heat your engine of you place it right, just your tank.
