Haven't you added the resistor though to get lean burn at any outside temperature?

I thought I got lean burn any time, because I've had it when temps were in the teens (lowest it got in Michigan while I was there), but I had two episodes of 2-3 minutes where I couldn't get lean burn on my drive down to college last night and the temp was 31 both times. I haven't added a resistor yet.
