They are great devices, but what I'd suggest is to use the aircon/climate more often to prevent the windscreen misting up, and when the frosty mornings return, placing a hot water bottle on the dahboard (but not touching the windscreen) around 10 mins before you set off. It'll save you wasting time/fuel waiting on the engine warming the coolant.

(just a thought - imagine this topic surfacing in summer)


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
