But you probably still start 5 minutes in advance to let the max AC setting cool the interior to double digits lol!

Re: What temperature are you warming your oil to?

Cold idling diesels is not good. If the cylinder temps are low the fuel will wash down into the oil, oil analysis will show you how much the oil is diluted. You want to get the exhaust temp up to 350 or so if your into long idle times.
2 minutes is more than enough time in severe cold.

What he said. This will be my first winter back in North Dakota with a diesel engine, but I rarely let any engine warm up for more than a minute - even at -20 degrees.

Don't the ecodiesels have the same kind of electic cabin heater that was on our old 2008 CRD to supply some warm air to the cabin when the engine was cold? The 2008 had 3 50-amp fuses for that system so I assume it supplied at least 1,200 watts to the heater.

Re: What temperature are you warming your oil to?

I start, put on belt while seat moves forward and usually check mirrors and hit the wipers if needed. At that time the JEEP alert advisory notice on my 8.4 sscreen has gone out and I get on my way....30 seconds? My Jeep & BMW I wait for the revs to settle down as well.

Once the engine is started, I mash the throttle to the floor so the rev limiter kicks in. I keep it there until the Sirius gets a good signal, then let off the throttle, put it in gear and go. Never really thought about the temperature but the engine seems pretty warmed up.

Re: What temperature are you warming your oil to?

I let mine get to 100*F , sometimes that needs some idle time, sometimes none. At the depth of Chicago winter id give it up to 10 minutes warm up.

Idling is not as bad as some say, too much of anything is bad.
