If you're behind just one car that burns gasoline, how is the air quality?

If you're behind one VW burning diesel, you're gonna die!

It was more about feeling the crisp breeze and listening to the waves.

Then I went over my plans mentally on how to take over the world.

If the AC is running, then recirculation. If its nice out and the windows are down, then fresh air... this is almost as bad as "do you pour milk or cereal in the bowl first" lol

Hmmm, do I want hot, humid air pumped into my car, or relatively cooled, dried air...

I recirc mostly but I vent from outside when I defrost my AC so I don't get mildew smell. Been doing that for over 10 years with no smellz. My friend had her Audi for like 6 months and it smellz like a yeast infection. I even told her what to do and she never does it because entitled. I would offer to get rid of the smell but figured she wouldn't even be grateful past day 1 and get it smelling like a dirty rag again before the summer's up.

I cringe when I see newer cars driving around in 90+ weather with their windows down. Either that’s a shitty car with ac that has already gone bad or they hate their life so much that they don’t realize that they could not be on fire.

Hilarious responses lolol.

In the South...
Recirculated for LOCAL trips
Alternating between the two... ROAD trips where the cabin is sealed for hours and the humidity level drops and it slaps your eyes and nasals.

Auto is nice though I found myself getting annoyed at the par-sec delay when switching automatically for smog/emission reasons #firstworldproblems

Re circulation most of the time. Fvkin critters like to crawl inside at night. But if its a nice cool morning and not much traffic I let fresh air in.
