Default Sleeping the car

http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/uae/he...cars-1.1064327

As the comments suggest, what's the difference between sleeping in a car with A/C on and driving in the car with A/C on for a long period?

Scientists, please help.

Not to be confused with sleeping with a car. I though, perhaps things may have gone downhill for Scamp.

Did you ever see that Channel4 doc on 'mecaphiles' (think that's what they are called.

The bloke they were following was caught kissing the crew's 4x4 in the middle of the night. Awesomely funny.

lack of airflow over the car. highly unlikely though.

Also the AC doesn't run as cool when not moving, same reason. Not that will kill you though.

Stationary car means the CO stays in the immidiate vicinity and can seep into the car . Still unless you are in a confined space, I don't see how enough CO could get into the car unless your exhaust had a leak in it.

BTW, have you felt short of breath when taking a swig of fresh soda? I read that it is the CO displacing the oxygen in the air and in your bloodstream but don't know how true that explanation is , though sounds plausible.

Correct on the car. But, I hope it's CO2 and not CO on the coke...
