I guess I should have been more clear. I do take great care in warming up the engine before I get on it. Most of you guys do not have an oil temp gauge in your car, so you have no idea of what the temp is at any given time, but if you lug the car around all day at low rpm, you will not get it warm and in turn do more damage than if you rev it.
