BULLCRAP!!!!!! It would be passively cooling the engine as it will radiate heat under the hood. It will also be full of cooler fluid that will be mixed with what is in the engine as the tstat opens. Dax has a full block and makes 7 miles commutes.He has confirmed his prius can easily handle such a short trip with no active cooling and stay cool. The newer insight the radiator takes up the whole front end of the car and may of us run a block year round.

Unless its over 85 degrees out my insight keeps its cool. Otherwise I just turn on the ac and roll up the windows. Me and the car stay cool til it hits 105 degrees.
