Thanks Steve. With the sudden onset coinciding with the recent drop in temperature I was hoping for the quick and easy fix. I'll try to grab some numbers tomorrow.
In case you haven't wandered over to the Open Forum for a while, the only reason this is of concern to me right now is that I will be moving to Michigan soon. Probably before the New Year, and if it is cranking long at 40*-50*F, I really hate to see how long it will take to light off at much colder temps.
