Where do you keep your owner's manual? Is it easy to get to and read
at, say, 10:00 PM? Is it a comfortable place to read? Is it well-lit?
Or, like probably 99% of car owners, is the owner's manual in the glove
box of the car parked outside someplace?
It's in the file cabinet downstairs, along with the service records.
By the way, are you saying that it's TOO ONEROUS for you to go outside
and open the car and get the owner's manual from your glovebox? Jesus,
are Americans really that lazy?

Frankly, it depends on where one is when the question comes up. If one
is dressed for bed, one may not wish to get dressed again to research
something in the car.
My manual is in the car, where it belongs. If Toyota didn't want me to
keep the owner's manual in the car, why did they provide that zipper
case for it, and put a slot in the back of the glove compartment for it?
"I actually get a lot of good information from Fred's posts, so why
don't you go enlighten the rest of the internet somewhere else."
I believe the rest of the internet qualifies as somewhere else. And you
want to get in the middle of this why?
Fred's not hurting anything with his posts here. Someone getting
sarcastic with him aint helping anything. I'm just saying the sarcastic
one, "That one" as JM would say, ought to leave him alone.
Here's the whole part of the thread referenced. How is this not in evidence?

back into the engine. This process reduces emissions, by achieving
warm-up much faster than with an engine that would normally have to heat
itself up. This process also helps to reduce wear & tear on the engine.

That's the go somewhere else part. But I have changed my mind. After
observing this thread for a few days I have decided that it is I who
don't want to get in the middle of anything here. This is not the same
Prius chat room that I lurked at a few years ago when I purchased my
Prius. So carry on. I'm sure I'll still lurk.
I also am not really adding anything constructive in this thread, only
asking the sarcastic person who is also not adding anything constructive
to back off Fred. Well, unless the Sesame Street reference is considered
constructive around here.
