I do, and have had two sets in there, left the first set in after reading some internet "tribal knowledge" about them swelling and being impossible to remove. Yet, after 24 months, they came out just fine. We sell 40,000 of that part number per year. Last year we had three calims related to swelling. In every case the owner had "hot wired" the GP's to a manual switch and left them on too long. That is why there is a voltage controller of some kind on virtually every glow plug in every diesel. I have several coworkers using them as well with no issues.
And yes, I use all of our companies products, Fram filters, Prestone antifreeze and Autolite spark plugs and glow plugs, have never had any issue's with any of them. And yes, I do get the parts for free. If you would like to try a set for yourself, I can send you a set for free as well.
