Hey Guys,

Just wondering if you guys keep your radiator running while your driving you car, to keep your engine cool?

I'm sure read something about it on my type s handbook, but I can't seem to find it on my type r handbook regarding about.

Is it unnecessary to keep the radiator running? I'm sure it affects your MPG? as I have been doing since day one from my type s fn2 model to now with my type r.

I think you may be confused about what the "heating/cooling fan" does - the one controlled from the cabin is for cabin temperature, not engine temperature. Engine temps are managed automatically.
