NBC Surveilance footage of DELL LAPTOP EXPLOSIONS - 2/6/2017 - CLICK HERE How long should you warm your engine up on a cold morning? Everyone has a different opinion. This video might finally put the debate to rest... Thanks Dave. Most manufactures strive to warm up their engines as quickly as possible in order to reduce the fuel enrichment necessary to operate the engine under cooler cold start scenarios thus reducing emissions. Two minutes to achieve full operating temperature is a long period of warm up these days with most engines achieving normal idle speed in less that that time. The opposed cylinder design used by Subaru get a slight mpg penalty because of the large surface area dissipating heat rather than producing power. I find it interesting that this engine took so long of a time to achieve idle speed at cold start at such a mild cold starting point.
