I start my car, clean off the frost/snow with the scrapper and drive the easy to warm it up. The theory is gas can bypass the cold rings and dilute the oil.

I'm close to 20,000 miles on my ej257.
256,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
