Winter time (for you Southern folk I'm talking about temps below 10F) for most driving conditions I've encountered the engine struggles to maintain more than 180F temps unless one covers the front grills.
That sounds too cool! Where did you get your Bluetooth OBD reader? Which Android app? Thanks in advance.
