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 line is another sure way to waste gas.

>30 seconds is wasting gas... but for diesel it's more like 3 to 10 minutes.

I do it if it's secure.

No, idling unnecessarily any longer than 30 seconds and your wasting fuel.

No. Cars are routinely stolen in my area when people do this.
