That would be the obvious first choice. And frankly if you do not have massive grillblocks then squirting water will only improve efficiency slightly.

But i get stuck in traffic a lot . So not much airflow over the coils. In my case, i think it will provide a noticeable benefit.

Stuck in traffic shouldn't be a problem.

When using AC, the cooling fan defaults to always-on mode. There should be plenty of airflow even while stuck in a stack of traffic. Cleaner coils will help you tremendously.

That said, stuck in traffic with a bunch of other engines all dumping heat into the air is when you would want the misting system the most.
