i am amazed at how quickly my 2.5petrol gets up to full engine operating temperature (temp guage at 40% in less than 5 minutes) its been 4degrees centrigade here today (uk) if that has any bearing.

it's so quick that i belived i had a faulty guage but all appears ok.

i think thet say that modern petrol engines get up to operating temp much quicker than diesels

my old classic car mini takes about 20mins in this weather ( it's a petrol engine albeit a very inefficient one :) )

:) Trust me, it's not faulty. Even at -25 here in canada, it takes about 5 minutes of regular city driving to get the engine up to temp. The cabin is still miserable, but the engine is happy.
