    I am having trouble understanding why the grill needs to be blocked. It seems to me that the coolant thermostat should keep the engine at its most efficent operating temperature. What am I missing here? I have blocked the bottom grill of my 2011 Prius this winter and it seems to help my mileage. But, I keep thinking that the thermostat needs to be replaced. I don't have a scan guage so I really don't know what is going on with my engine temperature.
