On practically every modern engine the ECU monitors the engine temperature via an engine coolant temp sensor and adjusts the fuel mix accordingly. Some engines share the same sensor as the temp gauge whilst others have two different sensors. To complicate it further many also have an air inlet temp sensor usually in the manifold or incorporated into the MAF sensor.
