Prius does it cuz engine is on/off so much.

Gotta wonder if it warms up much faster than regular stuff from initial start up?

I mean, with thermostats and especially us with grille blocks, it's only a matter of minutes anyway. I bet coolant doesn't even get overly cool with big P&G.

I think it's a hybrid thing.
