Without evaporation to convert the heat of the air to another form (e.g.,
water vapor), the water would just be brought *up* to air temperature, that
way. In most cases where we need tank cooling, the air temperature is way
above what we want for the water.

In an automobile the air is quite cold compared to the near-boiling water
temps., so heat is transferred away from the water/coolant.
