I was looking at a 7 or 8 inch samsung note today...

Idle warmup done today from cold soak for my Vibe.

It was -1 degree C and the coolant was at -6 when I started. It took over 20 minutes to warmup to 180 degree F but the engine did eventually flatline at 185 degree F. It looks like it only takes 20 seconds to get into closed loop mode, which is great. I burned just over .3 L during the test and my car hot idles at 0.526 LPH or 0.139 GPH.

These numbers tell me that the blockheater may not provide the value that I was hoping for in the car in my driveway. The truck in the other hand will fair better.

Those tests are next.
