Then I open the windows and blast the heater. It's been so long I don't recall if I felt the freed-up power but it definitely made the engine quieter! It warms up to operating temp faster; mech fans are always spinning whether their clutches are engaged or not. Also couldn't make an fe claim but it has to help.
I'm not sure that would work for me because a lot of what I do with this is heavy, low speed (50-55) towing in the summer time.
