That's interesting and good to know. I have an eight minute commute to work and typically do not drive further then that until the weekend. Though I sometimes take the highway home (extra few minutes as it goes around my destination), it still sees a lot of short drives. With that said, what would be a good operating time to avoid such issues in the future?
