    I leave them in the car with it locked and a window down about 5 cm in case i'm more than 2 minutes. They're fine.

    Leave them in the car. More safer that way.

    My partner always makes sure that the car has enough petrol. If I'm desperate I'd pay at the pump.

    *battens down the hatches ready for the storm*

    I pay at the pump when possible or leave them in the car with windows down, take the keys & do the runner. Cant lock the car or the alarm goes off.

    As much as I'd like to take them with me, its not an option.

    I leave him in the car and lock it.

    I've never really seen why this whole thing is an issue?
