This is a very delicate balance for us going through sub-freezing winter months. FE drops regardless and it is very tempting to idle a lot.

I think I will definitely try out block heaters this winter. I plan on riding my bike when the bike trail is clear. So maybe I'll try it out on the wife's car, she has to drive about 4 days a week.

Frost on the windows is also a problem, covering them with plastic (or I guess a yoga mat) helps keep the frost off. All things I want to try this winter.
