If you keep an eye on the radiator block, it's not bad.

The engine puts out so little heat when your eco-driving, that the radiator block setting becomes very important to:

1) Maintain engine heat/engine warm up time
2) Keep the cabin warm

The car is definitely warmer than the motorcycle, which I was riding for the last two weeks, while refurbishing the Insight battery pack!

An automatic radiator block would be a great addition to the car someday.
