I've found that when it's cold enough, the car generally ignores eco and goes full blast during a remote start.I just installed a Clipper Creek in my garage. What is the most efficient way to preheat? Should I remote start the car with heat on eco,or actually power up or start the car and leave it plugged into the charger?
It will resume your previous programmed settings when you actually get in and start the car.
On damn-cold-days I typically do a full 10 minute remote start and extend it until I'm out the door. No waiting to recharge.
But my goal is not to leave with a full battery, it's to have a car that's not -23.
