Environmentalist and car auto mechanics are both agreeing on one thing.    Warming your car on cold winter days is no longer necessary, with modern automobiles.   In the old days (cars older than 20 years) it was suggested by auto makers to warm your car to allow engine oil to reach the top part of the engine.

With new ingestion technology it’s no longer important to warm your vehicle while idling. 

It helps with global warming if you start the vehicle let it run for approximately 30 seconds and drive away gently allowing the vehicle to warm while your drive.  Mechanics suggest the same, but for a different reason.  They say new more efficient fuel injectors eliminate the need for a lengthy warm up. 

Save the planet start and go.
