Re: How can I make a solar powered car venting system like the Prius has?
Yes, they will move a relatively lot of air, but not nearly enough to cool a car sitting in the hot sun. Even with the engine running and the car's vent fan on high, it really doesn't do much of anything temp wise. That's why automotive AC is so popular. There's just no comparison between a computer or muffin fan compared to a hi power AC.
