First time winter Driving.
I was going to ask why you were driving so fast and taking this picture in the winter- and how you got up there so fast, since the "Drive with Care" thing only lasts like 10 seconds... then I realized the gauges cycled. They don't do that in the 2014s anymore.

why should i turn it off? I don't build static with leather seats.

I guess I can say less wear on the starter since i don't use it as often, but i don't really care about that

I also love the sound of the v8 at idle w/ exaust

Because it's -10F with a - 35F wind chill and my ass is sitting in the warm car while it fills.

Have I mentioned that I hate winter?

Oh and that reason too, sometimes premium doesn't fill 17 gallons at a quick rate.

It works on the 2012; but I found the radio must be on for it to work...

Since I first read this tip, I've used it often and really appreciate the information.

Could it have something to do with the Mylink radio your car has and the old type radio he has?

After reading this thread...

My brain:

5% friends names

3% work stuff

2% phone numbers

90% Camaro info

I should clarify... I use an Android Phone (Galaxy S3, on Verizon) not OnStar.
I am not sure what it does with OnStar or iOS devices.

OK here is a new one I stumbled on to because we are in the middle of an Ice Storm...

Even with the defroster on high the upper corner of the drivers side windshield iced over and would not clear.

I found that turning on the dash vents (round ones on the outside) to blow upward it will clear the corner spots.

Crack the windows open a bit and the windshield and side windows will clear with the defroster.

Ah... drawing the hot air up higher on the windshield? I will have to give that a try... But hoping this is the last ice storm for a while.
