|Brief update on the blanket project. Still running along without any problems. No real cool weather until now. Should start seeing some low 30F commutes.|
In case anyone is wandering, I'm not expecting a huge windfall of FE increase with the blanket project. If overall I can see a 2, maybe 3 percent increase during the winter driving period, that would probably be about the max. I can already see an improvement in the warm up time. After 6 or 7 miles out, I could start burping 190+F coolant into the cabin heater core; However, I usually wait until ~203F to start opening up the climate control.
