Warming the engine up in the morning does not consume a lot of gas. It only looks like it, but overnight, gas evaporates. Which goes to the charcoal canister as fumes, and is used by the engine at...

Yeah, it's not an accessory. In Japanese culture it actually means "good luck" or "good wealth". I can pretty much write a novel about the style(VIP) that these kids are trying to imitate but I don't...
