Checked “Driving”: Auto Blanket

The most effective way is to insulate the engine compartment. To do this, it is necessary to cover the engine with a strong, non-combustible and rather thick (20-30 mm) material. An old padded jacket will not work – it can catch fire.

We decided to try a car blanket specially designed for these purposes (in the Za Rulem online store it costs 1,900 rubles). They covered him with an engine and tested its effectiveness at different temperatures and in different conditions.

Winter tips for a motorist. Unexpected and useful
Heat losses really decreased significantly. This is especially felt when the engine warms up in place. The temperature of the coolant rises by about 40% faster than under the same conditions without a blanket. And after the trip, the engine cools down very slowly: its temperature remains positive after six hours at -8 ° C overboard. In the course of the tests, another useful effect was found: the noise of the motor significantly decreased.

True, there are nuances. In motion, an auto blanket does not protect the engine from cold so effectively. In addition, it is very important to lay the car blanket in the engine compartment so as to prevent it from falling into moving mechanisms (cooling system fans and auxiliary drive belt). Therefore, it is better to purchase a specific model designed specifically for your car. We especially recommend that you secure the auto blanket with wire in those places where it can slip onto the drive belt.
