So everyone knows that short trips with the engine cold give you horrible mpgs...

Heck in my ioniq today, a 5 mile short trip to get groceries and back with ''hypermiling'' netted me 29mpg. and its a HYBRID! obviously this was because the engine was cold and none of the fluids or parts were warmed up and at the best operating temp...

IS THERE A WAY to speed up this warming up cycle or get better gas mileage for shorter trips? would a winter heat block still help the engine warm up during hot summer months? does parking in the sun help the engine warm up faster? what other things or '' hacks'' can someone do to get better short trip driving fuel economy?
