I believe that you are the first DIYer to do this successfully
My comments:
  • 10 liters is quite heavy for a car like the Uno. You'd probably feel the extra weight in city driving.
  • Could the 10-liter tank fit into the engine bay? This would not only reduce the length of plumping needed, but also any heat which escapes through the insulation would warm the engine bay.
  • Maybe less water and more insulation? The 2nd-gen Prius has a thermos for coolant which is only 3 liters, iirc.
  • Do you have any kind of insulation in the engine bay? Maybe a hood blanket when parked?
  • I assume that your grille is blocked.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
