15 sec­onds for 30 years

Go! Camp & Drive - - Letters - JO­HAN VORSTER via email

I re­fer to the De­cem­ber 2017 is­sue where Mic van Zyl says in his col­umn that you have to idle your ve­hi­cle’s en­gine for 15 sec­onds be­fore driv­ing. I agree. Switch on, drive out the yard, close the gate, and drive slowly for the first few kilo­me­tres. I’ve been do­ing it for the past 30 years. If you do this the gear­box and dif­fer­en­tial slowly reaches its op­ti­mal tem­per­a­ture and the oil isn’t cold and thick.
