    Default Thermostat

    I was talking with another diesel owner today and i happened to mention that my Veccy takes quite a while before it's up to temp. (i.e. so i can give it beans ) And he reckons that his doesn't take very long at all.

    I would say that mine takes about 5-8 mins before it's fully up to temp. Is this normal or is my thermostat buggared?
