Hi I'm new here :)! I have a t reg mondeo 2.0 petrol fuel wise it's brilliant :)! Just wondering how to keep the heat in the car? I hall explain more, sometimes me and my friends park up in our cars for the night and just chill till the morning there, however if I put the heating on to warm car up then turn all off half way through early hours of morning it's cold. Now I know it would be as no heating is on but surely some heat should stay in car? And I also want to put a lovely loud exhaust on there so jut wondering if anyone has done this before and what it is like

Have something to contribute?

The issue you have is that cars are meant to keep the road and weather out, not the heat in. So they dont really have a great deal of insulation. If you really wanted to make your car less thermodynamic, you would need to insulate everything good and proper! where talking insulation in every cavity. Its doable, but bear in mind you are only slowing down the rate of heat leaving, not resolving, so you will wake up a little cold, but perhaps not quite blue!

 

You would be looking to remove all the door cards and pack it full of insulation, along with removing the dashboard and insulating everything there. Boot, and rear seats would all need insulation around them too!

 

To be honest, you will find its a lot of expense for little gain - on the plus side your driving around will be a lot quiter with insulation like that, but as I say, you wont be able to wake up the next morning and wonder if your in bed or not!

Remember the country cottage Mercedes off Top Gear? Concrete floor will hold heat for longer (ie over night) and a log burner will stop you from getting a flat battery.  :P

 

Seriously though, without extreme modification/weight a car is never going to hold warmth for very long (as said above).
