    Interesting; the whole concept, I mean. Automobile manufacturers warn that we should not run our cars out of the gate during the winter months without warming them up first. Unfortunately, it takes more than 1 minute to warm a car up to get it ready to perform effectively.

  2. Andrew says:

    Manufacturers do not say that. A search on the internet says 30 seconds warm up is needed. With old cars it was longer due to carburetors. Not now, JD Power says “Warming up is a great way to maintain engine health. You allow it to lubricate itself and, in turn, prolong its life cycle. However, modern vehicles no longer have carburetors, and lubrication takes 20-30 seconds. So, there is no real need to sit idle much beyond the time it takes to defog the windshield.” All sources seem to say 30 seconds to 1 minute. Consumer reports ,Toyota all say the same. Just Saying!

    Wow, By-law will have a field day on Bank street anytime there is an event at Lansdowne.
    When will this council combine logic with their thinking.
