I use my bottle heater to bring the bottle up to pressure then shut it off in the lanes.Then when I'm ready to make a run after the burnout and purge I turn the bottle heater on.My thinking is to help the bottle maintain pressure as it goes down the track.I'm just wondering if this is ideal or should I just leave the heater off.Any thoughts on this would be appreciated .

I don't think it going to add heat fast enough to make a difference, so then it becomes an unneeded drain on the electrical system. I vote for leave it off.

I agree with BBC, but that presumes you don't have an alternator, but rather one or two batteries only...too much of a drain on battery charge, for a nominal effect on bottle temp. Throw on a bottle heating pad (non-electrical) or even a bottle blanket around the bottle(s).

Yeah leave it off, you are talking about what, 10 seconds of nitrous being used. 10 seconds of heat from a bottle heater isn't going to make any difference in the temperature when the cold nitrous is flowing out of it.
