With Summer approaching what do you guys do when parked to cool off ? Obviously running the car is burning fuel and you don’t want to do that , you may as well drive aimless until pings come in ... so with Summer approaching what are your thoughts on cooling off while parked and not end up drenched in sweat before your next pickup

I read that idling burns about 1/5 a gallon an hour. At $3 a gallon that's $0.60 an hour. The engine is not turning off lol

I keep the motor idling to keep the A/C running, and look for a shady spot, adding operating expense to excessive U/L dead time in S/A and excessive fare take-out stupidly expensive.

Even with windows down and a 6" clip-on fanning blowing in your face, you'd suffer and sweat in 90F+ heat.
