What an existence.

Outside every house? And apartment?

yes

Why is winter diesel fuel mileage lower than it is in the summer? (bellperformance.com)

Fuel consumption higher in winter? : r/Diesel (reddit.com)

I’ve never noticed a big change weather wise. But I’ll look out for it for this winter, and future winters until I can afford my Ford Raptor
