Runs better at 60-70 degrees

Does anyone notice how their truck runs better at a certain temp?

Mine REALLY runs so much better between 60-70 degrees compared to other temps.

Anyone else?

It should run better at lower temps with denser, drier air. Anything will run worse when it is hotter though of course.

Even at 50 degrees it dosent run the same. For some reason that temp range is the sweet spot.

60-70 is ideal temps for any vehicle.

Those of us in colder climates, when the temp drops, like in the fall, our states employ a different gasoline... which is why in the winter we get crappier mpg, and why the vehicles dont run as well.

All vehicles run better in ideal temperature conditions.

When its too hot or too cold, the vehicle is using up more energy in order to keep it running at a correct operating temperature.
