Maybe just turn down the sun, that thing is running LEAN!!!!
In hotter weather, the engine runs more rich

When it gets colder, engine leans itself

track is good, but workplace is too small, make distance between tables bigger, will be very good.

AlvinM and B are both right, but you are talking about two different factors. B never said anything about temperature, he just talked about 'state of engine tune', while AlvinM, you were talking about how ambient temperature affects the cooling process of an engine.

when it gets colder air becomes denser and the mixture ratio is upset cuz too much air compared to fuel

Amount of fuel going into engine stays same, more O2, upset the ratio, engine gets lean

All this talk about engine tuning just from a funny comment about the sun?
