If I'm just stopping for coffee or running into a gas station, I leave my car running. Do you do this too?

No, I want my car there when I get back. Besides, it wastes gas. Waiting in a fast food Drive-thru line is another sure way to waste gas.

I don't do it if only because the warning stickers at the pump say to turn off the ignition. Even though the stickers are just a precaution, still...

No, any idle time for more than 30 seconds wastes gas.

Nope... And it absolutely pisses me off when I see people just let them run for no other reason but to blast the heat on themselves...

If you don't take the keys out, you can get a ticket here.
A couple months ago, someone left the car running at the mall, some guy stole it, got into a police chase and rolled it down a hill.
He's in jail now.

no. it's a keyless start so you can't lock it while engine is running.

No. Bad idea. You'll see why, as soon as somebody steals your car.
