The consensus is that the majority of the drivers do not warm up their cars. Our cars performance just fine with a cold engine. Warming up the inside of the car is for the comfort of the driver.

10-30 sec. is the norm. Extreme Winter 30 - 180 seconds gets the visibility stuff done, I have usable cabin heat within 120 sec. and that builds temps upward on the drive-away. Desire a remote start device.

My warm-up is the amount of time between starting the vehicle and putting it in reverse......about three seconds.
