I have had the same thought about "idling" in the LEAF...oh, I am going to get CO poisoning. oh, I am going to overheat it. oh, I can't run the AC without the engine running. oh, I need to pass this car....will my little car have enough umph? oh, where are my keys? as I grope to put the key in the ignition and a million other ICE habits I am trying to break! :lol:

My wife gives me a hard time about sitting in the car playing with stuff, like I'm in love with it (which I am). Feeling like there is something going on she said "I saw you out there....... inside of HER" :lol: :lol: :lol:

The house AC is broken, so Thursday it was 97 degrees when I got home. Grabbed a pillow, activated the climate control with my phone, reclined the seat and had a great nap :D

I left the A/C running while messing with the phone setup, and by the time I was done, the rear right wheel was sitting in a puddle of condensed water. So you don't have to worry about CO, but H2O buildup.
