what is the point in heating up your fuel?? it would mean you need to buy higher octane fuel. you should try to cool your fuel.

Finally, something that makes sense(from a performance or FI stand point)...unless he has a carb'ed vehicle and the fuel is puddling in the intake, that would be most evident in a very cold temperature and with a failing heat riser.

no one is going to run a car in sub arctic temeratures, and i dont think he has a carburator, otherwise this would be in classics, so there is no reason to heat the fuel. it would vapor lock, or at least reduce performance.
