    That kind of stuff will probably help me next winter.
    In Canadian Maritime we have had like 2 full months below -20degres Celcius.
    I wasn't able to have a better mileage than 6.5l/100km in town, when right now with an average temperatur oh 25degres C, I'm around 4.5 to 5 l/100km in town.
    I will try the warm air intake next winter.

    I keep my WAI on year round. It helps the engine warm up faster, and I believe it gets me better MPGs. I use a scanguage 2, and the intake air temps are usually around 150 F once warmed up.

    Intriguing. I kinda like this idea, especially for cold weather operation. There should be a way to control the temperature.

    Hey live4redline - any suggestions on recommended equipment?
