more torque in the fall

my 650 seems to pull a lot better in the cool weather, maybe because the fuel is colder?

I would think its more that the air is colder
and the engine does not get as hot.

Cool air is more dense.. usually lower humidity.. the fuel is also more dense. All of this equates to more power. More air more fuel is more power.

Cold air is denser as well as will support a richer mixture when say tuning on race night. Same reason why turbo cars run intercoolers.
