I live about .8 miles away from the entrance to the highway. In the mornings (anywhere this month from 0F-20F), I usually start the car, let it warm up for about 30 seconds or so , and then just slowly drive till I get to the highway. When it's 0 degrees F, I usually give it a minute or 2 sitting at neutral to let the tranny fluids flow too. Between my house and the entrance to the highway, I'm usually stopped at 2 stoplights and it does add that extra coupla of minutes of idle warmup. Been reading some past threads, and I'm not sure if this is *warm enough* for the engine to get on the highway. I'm usually keeping the car around 2K RPM but I am maintaning a speed of around 60mph by the time I hit the highway.........Is this a good thing or not? The next entrance from my house is 3.5 miles but with the local morning commuter traffic to that entrance....as they say in Brooklyn - fuggedaboutit.
