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

No, not only does it waste fuel, you could get your vehicle stolen. In most places it is not legal.

No, never. Criminals are opportunists. Would not give them opportunity.

No. That is a ridiculous thing to do. It's an easy way to loose your car and wastes a gas. In fact, here in Austin is is against the law to do just what. OP, is your car all that hard to restart?
