True, but Piwoslaw drives his Svetlana the way that the engine reaches normal working temps only in a hot summer Joking, but that's not so far from the true... I don't think that it can be a problem for this specific car (driver).

Gerhard Plattner: "The best attitude is to consider fuel saving a kind of sport. Everybody who has enough money for a strong car, can drive fast and hit the pedal. But saving fuel requires concentration, self-control and cleverness. It's a challenge with the nice effect of saving you money that you can use for other more important things."
