    This hurts my pocket! :)

    Is it normal or should I change the thermostat thing really? Coz my car gets 90Degrees in 20-25 min. approx.


    Thanks! :)

    Yes James, it stays on :)


    So what about consumption, is it normal when the weather got cold like 10 - 15 degrees less?

    Totally normal... Cars always use a bit more fuel in the colder weather.
