Well I won't go so far as to say he is a moron (i.e., retarded)... but he is certainly not well informed and is recommending a practice that will increase engine wear, decrease efficiency (lower mpg)... .. you are correct..

May I submit for your perusal...California EmissionLaws? :action:

It is my belief that the EPA Regs have forced our (all) engines to run too hot...but I would love to be corrected, to learn the truth...:waving:
It wasmaybe emission laws that initially pushed the temperature limits upward a little, but thermostats have been around since the '30s... but even the higher temperatures were a win/win situation.. higher temperatures (for more complete burning) also means higher efficiencies (just plain physics).. And maybe initially it might have been "too hot" and pushed the limit in technology of materials and lubricants,better oils and materials have been the result as well...
