Fuel vaporizes better in warmer air, like heated intake air.
Early 80s GM cars had a grid under the carb to redue emissions on start up and cold start easability.
Also new cummins diesels have a 1000 watt intake air heaters in them to help cold starts.

Fact truly is stranger than fiction.
Glad it worked.
