well in case of a carburated engine, you need to start your vehicle with the help of choke for around 15 to 20 secs, and then let it idle with the choke off for another 15 to 20 secs. use min amount of accelerator if there is no starting problem with your vehicle. 1 to 2 mins. is enough for the circulation of oil inside the engine.
Finally someone has similar thoughts [clap]

Welcome to TAI, Do introduce yourself in the respective section.[:)]

Winter Maintenance And Driving tips for cars

Cold climate can take a toll and compromise the safety of your car.For a comfortable winter driving follow the tips.
Cold temperature can weaken belts and hoses under the hood.check their condition to avoid snaps or breaks.
Keep your wiper fluid filled up, as fluid can assist in breaking down the frost on the windshield.
Avoid an empty fuel tank; cold and constantly shifting temperatures can cause condensation on the walls of an empty fuel tank and soon water will drip down in to the fuel.it may cause trouble in the fuel system.
The cold temperatures of winter cause engine oil to thicken,but you can overcome this problem by filling your engine with a suitable additive.
If you ever find yourself skidding on an icy/slippery road,don’t brake; take your foot off of the accelerator and guide your car to safety by turning the steering wheel in the opposite direction you’re skidding.
