Force gas part of hybrid to run?

It may or may not be a waste of time and money, but I decided to paint the exhaust system of my 2021 XSE with Rustoleum high heat primer and paint. Part of the process is to cure the paint by doing the following:

Idle for 10 minutes - cool down.
Idle for 20 minutes - cool down.
Drive normally for 30 minutes - cool down.

So my question is - how do I force the gas engine to run constantly?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Maintenance mode works to run the engine at idle or a fast idle, but the vehicle should not be driven in maintenance mode. For the driving part, exit maintenance mode and just drive the vehicle as you normally would.
