thermostat change

Just got a new thermostat and it really does make a difference.
I used to burn a cigarette waiting the engine to heat up in the morning.
At normal Bur Dubai roads the temp was sitting at perfectly 90, however when i go for long drive via SZR the temp would drop to 70 again.

Now, the engine warms up quickly and stands still at 90 no matter how I drive.
On the fuel consumption, earlier I filled her up 50 AED a week, but now only 30 AED.

not bad

hahaha nope, only more economical.
saving AED 20 per week will come to AED 1040 a year.
Not bad right? you can pay for minor service at Gargash with that amount.
