Feel free to aromatically drive around the block and confuse pedestrians!

I run heavy equipment and it is a common practice, especially with canned soups and ravioli.
I heated ravioli on the exhaust manifold on one of these a couple of days a week to break up the sandwich boredom.

^ Skyking, you should really add a fairing to those headlights, they're killing your aero

Have you tapped the heater core for your coffee yet ? 190deg is a perfect temp. Some copper line wrapped around a camping percolator........

Hey, that would not be bad for a coffee warmer

I'd really like to try this too. I don't know, would it be safe with a diesel?

I'd hazard a guess that more food gets cooked by guys like me out in the woods, on diesel excavator/dozer/backhoe/stationary engines than any other method.

When I operated the forklift all day I would leave cans of chunky soup under the motor of the machine. Wasn't bad in summer but in winter it didn't get hot. Decided subway was less effort.

I just made an imitation "muffpot" by taking a small metal box I was going to recycle. I made two holes in the bottom for a stainless steel screw clamp and then clamped it to a hose beside the exhaust manifold. Much better looking than my previous version, but probably not as effective, since it does not make direct contact with the exhaust manifold. Still, I can move it if I think of a better location.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Wow... A water heater would be a great addition to my car... That way, I could take hot showers while on the road. This is brilliant!
