Want Heater Hoter

My gauge only goes HALFWAY to the FIRST thick mark driving at"typical"
freeway speeds on really cold days. I was planning on inserting a sheet of
cardboard between the radiator and condenser, akin to the mask
used by the large diesel rigs in cold weather, to see if it would make any 
difference. However, I suspect all of my spare engine heat is going
into heating up the passenger compartment on 0-20 degree mornings.
