Default Re: Ah, winter time. Engines are feeling better!

Since December weather is more prominent in January in Bangalore this time around, it is a good feeling driving the car in the mornings .

It has been around 14-15 Celsius during early mornings and my car just about reaches the usual coolant temperature just when I am reaching office which is 7 kms away.

The intake temperature does not go over 25c in the same duration.

Eager to rev and smooth while doing so.

Though engines are feeling better, I have observed significant drop in mileage since I use my car only upto 3 kms to park at nearest metro station and then back to home in the evening. Because the engine is not able to warm up properly, the fuel consumption is bit on higher side.
