This is my 4th Powerstroke and I have well over 300,000 miles between them. I start it, get my seat belt on, look for any traffic and back out and go.
I have to weave thru a subdivision at 25mph and a connecting street at 30 mph for several miles before I get to the freeway. I always figured the engine was pumping enough oil to go ahead and accelerate up to freeway speed by time I got to the on ramp.
With the remote start, I now hit the button as I go out the door and let it idle while I feed the horses, It is set at the 5 minute idle and rarely ever times out before I get to the truck.
If you ever get a Pyro in your truck,. You will notice that the EGT's at idle are 350*-400*. But as soon as you do any driving, The EGT jump to 700-800 really quick. I've pretty much decided that it takes something more than idle to actually warm everything up.
