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

No, idling unnecessarily any longer than 30 seconds and your wasting gas. Beside, if you leave your idling while you go inside a store, it might not be there when you return:(

Believe it or not, in Austin, it is very illegal to do that. That's how cars get stolen. I shut mine off, take the key and lock the door. It ain't too hard to open and restart the car. Besides, I'm cheap and would rather save the gas.

It is unlawful in Kentucky to ever leave an unattended vehicle running .
