The only thing your doing is;
Locking your steering wheel, disabling abs, disabling thottle, disabling electronic steering assist, and your sensors should someone rear end you, your airbags wont deploy and the event data recorder will see that the last thing you did was turn off your car while in motion. Which will put you "at fault" regardless of who hit who.
Your cooling fans which would normally turn on, are off. Allowing your engine to sit in it heated stated.
To summerize; i doubt your accomplishing what you mean to, and your leaving yourself liable and at risk. And risking other people "potential" safety to save what? A few cents?!???
So those lights on the front of your car, they use electricity, which robs power ( thus fuel economy ) from your engine. Might as well rip those out. Side mirrors, aero. Remove those.
I mean youll be lighter and have less power robbing parasites, and saved a couple more cents...
