Re: Just hot everywhere

May be true with many cars, but not mine. Mine is a boxy little SUV with
no aerodynamic traits. I did note the use of more gas when using AC in
it when I first got it. The best air circulation in my car is to remove
the back top. Keep the canvas portion on across the front seats to
shield from the sun, but with the larger back canvas removed. I just
didn't want to take the time to remove it.

Actually, Kitty, with modern cars, it costs more in gas to have the windows
open than having the AC running,  due to the way the airflow over the body
is designed and the drag with windows open.  Or so I'm told.
